Agri. Minister urged to ban sale of bread products in school canteens

 

The Mawbima Lanka Foundation have called on the Minister of Agriculture, Wildlife and Forest Resources Conservation, Mahinda Amaraweera, to promote the use of rice flour, as opposed to the wide use of wheat flour.


It has been proposed that the selling of sugary drinks and wheat-flour based bakery products be banned in school canteens, and that organic fruit juices and rice-flour based products be sold instead.


It was also proposed that rice-flour based products be sold at canteens of government institutions as well.
