The eminent judging panel of the NCE Export Awards comprised of independent professional judges assisted by a separate Technical Committee and the world renowned Audit firm Ernst and Young.

Commenting on the occasion, Ceylon Biscuits Limited, Director International Sales, Nadeeja Karunathilaka noted: “We are delighted about winning Best Brand Exporter of the Year Award, and the coveted gold award as the Most Outstanding Exporter in the Large Scale Confectionery sector. Despite many challenges that prevailed both locally and globally during the past two years, Munchee has been able to achieve this excellence due to its continuous commitment to superior quality, in every product and process, to create enriching moments for its consumer. This has enabled Munchee to take the highest quality of confectionery products, made in Sri Lanka, to the world. Sri Lanka’s traditional exports such as tea, rubber, gems and apparels have garnered substantial demand in the global market, and we are truly pleased that a non-traditional product such as biscuits has taken the global limelight and is competing on par with our export giants.”
CBL and its brand Munchee have been significant exporters of confectionery since the company began exporting its products in 1970. Since its roots in 1968, CBL Group has grown to become one of the largest food manufacturing conglomerates in Sri Lanka. CBL has taken strategic steps to cater to growing demand from export markets for its products in the face of future challenges. It is the only biscuit manufacturer to have established a dedicated production facility in the BOI Seethawaka Export Processing Zone to cater to growing export demand for Sri Lanka’s Munchee brand.
