Consumer rights activists demand benefit of dropped food prices be conveyed to public (VIDEO)

Asela Sampath, President of the Restaurant Owners’ Association, together with a group of other consumer rights activists today (15) lodged a complaint to the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) alleging that the benefit of the dropped prices of some of the essential food items has not been conveyed to the consumers.

Speaking to reporters, President of the Restaurant Owners’ Association and Consumer Rights Activist Sampath emphasised that the Subject Minister has authorised the CAA to inquire whether the public has benefited from the reduction of prices of certain food items. Therefore, the CAA must be given the strength to break the ‘black market mafia’, he pointed out.

Sampath stressed that actions should be taken against the black market mafia in the exorbitant prices of eggs, meat, biscuits and bread flour and control prices should be established for plain tea, lunch packs and hoppers.
