Minister of Trade Bandula Gunawardana claims the Sathosa network has been transformed into the only outlet chain that consumers can obtain goods at reasonable rates.
The Minister noted a number of products introduced through Sathosa have been introduced to the market.
Minister Gunawardana speaking in Pitipana yesterday said Sathosa has introduced Sathosa branded kochchi sausages, bottled water, ice cream, tea, washing powder, soap, and several other goods.
The Minister also said Sathosa outlets sell an environmentally friendly SLS certified water bottle for Rs.35 and upon returning the bottle, Rs.10 is given back to the customer.
The Minister said this bottled water programme was initiated by Sathosa to reduce the impact plastic has on the environment.
