21.08.2017

Sri Lanka has begun work on the country's first ever international standard food testing and safety centre that directly focuses on food producers in the country, even those in villages.

According to the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Rishad Bathiudeen, a huge sub-sector within Sri Lanka's crucial Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) is being positioned for exports. The Minister added that the SME sector of the country directly impacts national food supply and security, and the nation is encouraged by the rising exports within this sector.
