All commercials on imported milk powder via print and electronic media have been temporarily suspended with immediate effect by the Director General of Health Services.

Yesterday, the Health Services Director General temporarily halted the release of all imported dairy products containing whey protein from the port after New Zealand warned international health authorities that several dairy products may contain a bacteria that could lead to botulism.

All milk powders imported from New Zealand will be temporarily held at the port while all dairy products containing whey protein concentrate that are already in circulation will be pulled off the shelves.

Every imported dairy product will be tested, the Health Services Director General, Palitha Maheepala stated. He added that infant milk powder in circulation now does not contain any whey protein.

AFP reported last week that New Zealand warned international health authorities of exported dairy products, including infant formula, containing a bacteria that could lead to botulism -- a potentially fatal illness.

Brilliant move !!! dm front page yesterday says CEO apologizes for contamination in the inside pages ads by the company contradicting this. Finally something tangible done about the situation. Even today's papers carry ads proclaiming that milk from Newzealand is clean .

Why Sri Lankans so keen to use powdered milk? We hardly see powdered milk in developed countries. Again why do not Sri Lankans consume locally manufactured milk?
Ask yourself how many of you buy these foreign powdered milk.

As usual there are many patriots in Facebook and in front of media but real term hardly any exists.

Anhydrous milk (milk powder) will always contain added protein. It will always be like that. You can either do it on each site location or at the Fonterra facility in NZ

Liquid milk gets ruined by sunlight which is why SL liquid milk tastes stale. Also milk powder is cheaper as the packet lasts longer than the bottles...... you wouldn't want to be penny wise pound foolish Razz

why would you need to keep liquid milk under the sunlight? that's probably the last thing you should do with milk.

agree milk powder is cheaper.

There are some locally manufactured milk powder if you so fancy milk powders.

That's the point SL milk gets spoiled by sunlight. That's why SL milk tastes like a bit of chocolate powder has been mixed in. Ever tasted Fonterra's liquid milk.

Milk powder is not manufactured in SL. It is brought from China and repacked.

Milk is not 100% essential for adult males. It was an alternative to meat during World War I/II and cold winters where hunting was not suitable

Aney now rainmaker talking about sunlight.

i am thinking, cows do not get spoilt or die from sunlight, how can milk from cow gets spoilt ?

can be possible because leather also comming from cows. during rain, cows skin nothings happens. but if leather gets wet, then finished. it gets spoilt.

milk and leather comming from cow. during sun or rain nothing happening to the cow !

i am not understanding the logic. just like our stock market.

Joke !

( temperature, food , genetics has some effect. Cool mountains give tastier milk .)


Milk powder is not manufactured in SL. It is brought from China and repacked.

Another joke !

Highland, Pelwatta, Nestle have spray drying plants in Sri Lanka. 1000s of local farmers supply fresh milk to them.

At last, something agreeable .

Then why everybody talk only about Highland and Pelawatta ?

The difference: Nespray is blended and other two are Premium ! (not mixed)

Highland and Pelawatta are spray dried whole milk. No additives for anti-clotting. No adding of palm oil or protein to gain required
percentages.

Nespray is made partly of  locally Dried milk . Many other substances are added to get the required taste and nutrition. Anti-clogging chemical also added.

How much of Advertisement costs built in to the cost of milk (foreign) powder, paid by the poor man.

Two separate issues are being confused. One is Botulism bacteria and the other is DCD. For botulism there should be zero tolerence. Its on the presence of DCD that the picture is very confusing.

Whether we like it or not we cannot avoid imports. Sri Lanka Just doesn't have enough production.

DCD is a fertilizer supplement has been used on New Zealand pastures for the last 30 years. It has only now (nearly a year ago) been been detected to have entered the food chain by being present in milk powder. This is not surprising. Anything we manufacture and put into the environment is ultimately going to come into the food chain. Mercury in fish, pesticide residue in vegetables and so on.

The question which has to be answered is what are the acceptable standards for DCD in milk powder. If it is zero then the current hysteria is justified.  If there are maximum limits to its presence in milk powder then DCD levels should be checked in comparison to these limits.

I have searched the net for standards regarding presence of DCD in milk powder ( EU standards, WHO standards) etc but have not been successful. If anyone reading this blog is aware, please post.

This is a serious issue, no doubt. And it has to be addressed

But to me the tragedy the country's bureaucracy ignores it till it becomes politicized and then it explodes.

Same thing happened at Weliweriya and at  Deraniyagala

Fonterra is a cooperative so different farmers get shares in Fonterra based on their respective production of milk litres. The more you produce and deliver to Fonterra to more you get.


A bit like the Paddy Marketing Board but slightly different tack.

The shares you get can be held, transferred to relatives, sold to other farmers or sold back to Fonterra at market price.


So different farmers from different regions use different types of fertiliser. Just like SL ....
