Pelwatte Dairy Industries Ltd., a leading manufacturer of locally produced dairy products, speaking on the current situation of the dairy industry in Sri Lanka stated that they have a surplus of milk and have already instructed the Export Development Board (EDB) to explore opportunities of exporting it as milk powder to China and as butter to Japan.
“We have a surplus of milk. We have already instructed the Export Development Board ( EDB) to explore opportunities to export it as milk powder to China and as butter to Japan. Roughly, 20 to 25 tonnes of milk powder sold in the market, and around 75 to 100 tonnes in the store,” Ariyaseela Wickremanayake, Chairman of Pelwatte Dairy Industries Ltd said, whilst speaking exclusively to Ada Derana Biz.
“When you go to the supermarket today, shelves filled with Local dairy milk products can be seen. We have more than enough. Hence, we don’t want to import even an ounce of milk”, he added.
