The Chairman CBL Mineka Wickramasinghe said that the consumers could continue to enjoy Munchee Lemon Puff with the fullest confidence as it is the only Lemon Puff in Sri Lanka cleared by the Ministry of Health as melamine free.

He stated that the Company was taken by surprise when the Swiss Internet report came triggering an unwarranted suspicion of melamine contain in Lemon Puff when the company imported all the milk ingredients only from Australia, Holland and Canada. He said that the company was further concerned when this issue appeared to be used to tarnish its good name locally.

However Ceylon Biscuits acting as a responsible company immediately withdrew the products from the market based on ISO 22000(HACCP), in the interest of consumer safety and peace of mind.

He pointed out that there were no permanent setbacks in any of their overseas markets and that their brands have continued to increase orders from several countries including UK, Australia, Canada, Zech Republic, Kuwait and Maldives, which had conducted independent testings to clear any doubts about Munchee products. Ceylon Biscuits is a reputed local company over 40 years in existence which has recorded Sri Lanka’s name in the international market covering 40 countries.
