Jayalanka Group clinches Bronze at Presidential Export Awards
The Jayalanka Group, an emerging brand in the field of local food exports, reaffirmed its excellence by winning the Bronze Award for the Best Exporter of the Year in the New Export category at the Presidential Export Awards.
The awards ceremony was organized by the Export Development Board at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall and was attended by President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and several Ministers and members of parliament.
“Our company was initially engaged in indirect exports. We had the opportunity to export a number of food products in a very short period of time after we shifted to direct exports. I gratefully acknowledge the founder of the company and my father, K.G. Upatissa who constantly strived to provide customers with high quality products,” said GaniduIshara, Chairman of the company.
Presently, the Jayalanka Group exports a wide range of local food items including spices, sesame products and treacle products to Australia, Canada, Zambia, USA, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, New Zealand and Germany which contributes to receive a significant amount of exchange to the country.
The Jayalanka Group of Companies, established in 1975, is now involved with both indirect and direct exports. Jayalanka now plans to expand its business in the future.
