Puredale, a leading force in Sri Lanka's dairy industry and the pioneer behind Puredale Kirithe, won a coveted Gold Award at the prestigious National Industry Excellence Awards 2023.
Organized by the Industrial Development Board under the purview of the Ministry of Industries, the awards recognized Puredale for its ground-breaking "Kirithe" milk tea product, lauded for its outstanding taste, superior nutrition, and convenient packaging. The accolade is a testament to Puredale's unwavering commitment to quality and innovation.
"We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award, which is a testament to our commitment to quality and innovation," expressed Puredale Chief Executive Officer, Lakshitha Weerasuriya. "We are passionate and proud to have created the delicious and nutritious Kirithe, a product that helps millions of people start their day feeling refreshed and energized, while saving time and money — the ideal product for this busy world we live in."
Puredale Kirithe's 3-in-1 milk tea is crafted with 100 percent natural ingredients, a blend of milk, tea, and sugar, free from common bulking and solubility agents like whey powder, wheat flour, palm oil, or sodium bicarbonates. Affordable and popular among Sri Lankan households, a cup of this traditional and natural Ceylon milk tea costs only Rs.45.
