Munchee,the flagship brand of Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL), was recently awarded the AA (Double A) Certification by the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

The AA Certification is the highest grade awarded by the UK based food safety standard certification body – BRC. CBL received the certification following a benchmarking and quality assurance assessment conducted by a team of experts from SGS Lanka, an affiliate of SGS – an international inspection, verification, testing and certification body.

Group Managing Director of CBL Ms. Sheamalee Wickramasingha said, “In the previous year CBL clinched the ‘Most Outstanding Exporter of the Year’ award. Being a non-traditional exporter who competes against very large exporters, this is not an easy accolade to win. BRC has broadened our scope, and helped us open new markets and reach new customers. “I’m really happy to announce today that we have received the first confirmed order from SPAR supermarket in China, a market we have been working quite hard to enter. This is indeed an endorsement of our commitment to what we do,” she said. QA Manager of CBL Ms. Shyama Rajapakse accepted the certification on behalf of the CBL from Global Product Manager of International Featured Standards (IFS) Mr. Joachim Schulz, in the presence of Group Managing Director of CBL Ms. Sheamalee Wickramasingha and Chief Executive Officer of CBL Mr. Nalin Karunaratne. Country Manager of SGS Lanka Mr. N. Sriram and Business Manager of SGS Lanka Mr. Chamika Wimalasiri also graced the occasion. Chief Guest Joachim Schulz said, “The main vision of the GFSI is ‘Safe food for consumers everywhere’, ensuring high quality food is delivered safely to all consumers worldwide.”
