Commenting on the occasion, Ceylon Biscuits Limited Exports General Manager Jude Rubera noted: “We are delighted about winning this year’s overall Gold Award in ‘Most Outstanding Exporter 2017’ in addition to three coveted gold awards. CBL has continuously maintained its superior quality across all brands, and especially our flagship brand Munchee has taken the Sri Lankan prestige throughout the world. Sri Lanka’s traditional exports such as tea, rubber, gems and apparels have garnered a substantial demand in the global market, and we are truly pleased that a non-traditional product such as biscuits has come into the global limelight and competing in par with our export giants. I would like to thank all our valuable consumers, traders, distributors, and other stakeholders for their constant support and patronage that has propelled our brand towards this notable achievement.”`
