Pel­watte Dairy sup­ports Culi­nary Arts at CAFÉ 2018

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

Sri Lanka’s 100 per­cent lo­cal dairy man­u­fac­turer, Pel­watte Dairy In­dus­tries Ltd re­cently joined hands with the Culi­nary Art Food Expo 2018 (CAFÉ 2018) as the of­fi­cial dairy spon­sor and co-spon­sor of the event.

The expo was held from June 1 to 3, at BMICH and was at­tended by a large crowd of culi­nary and food in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, stu­dents and the gen­eral pub­lic.

The Chief Guest at the open­ing cer­e­mony was Min­is­ter of Tourism De­vel­op­ment and Chris­tian Re­li­gious Af­fairs John Amarathunga.

Or­gan­ised by the World As­so­ci­a­tion of Chef So­ci­eties and the Chef’s Guild of Sri Lanka, the expo show­cases the very best in culi­nary ar­ti­sans spread across Sri Lanka. It also brings to­gether the en­tire com­mu­nity of culi­nary pro­fes­sion­als. This is the first time that Pel­watte Dairy has part­nered with the event.

“We all know that dairy prod­ucts are an in­te­gral part of many recipes be it but­ter, milk, yo­ghurt or ghee. Pel­watte Dairy is com­mit­ted to pro­duc­ing and distribut­ing 100 per­cent lo­cally man­u­fac­tured dairy prod­ucts not only to house­holds across the is­land but also to the com­mer­cial pro­duc­ers. This is why ty­ing up with an event like CAFÉ 2018 was very im­por­tant for our brand. Our stall re­ceived great re­sponse and feed­back from ev­ery­one who vis­ited us through­out the three days. We also found that many peo­ple have mis­con­cep­tions about dairy prod­ucts which our knowl­edge­able and highly qual­i­fied staff were able to put right,” said Pel­watte Dairy Manag­ing Di­rec­tor Ak­mal Wick­ra­manayake.

The Pel­watte Dairy stall at CAFÉ 2018 put on a colour­ful dis­play of its dairy prod­ucts in­clud­ing but­ter, liq­uid and pow­dered milk, flavoured milk and drink­ing yo­ghurt, ghee and ice-cream. Many dis­counts were also on of­fer for those pur­chas­ing in bulk from the stall, which also func­tioned as a com­pre­hen­sive in­for­ma­tion cen­tre re­gard­ing the dairy in­dus­try in Sri Lanka.

Fur­ther­more Pel­watte Dairy also pro­vided its sig­na­ture but­ter and bulk but­ter for the cook­ery demon­stra­tions and but­ter carv­ing com­pe­ti­tions that took place dur­ing the expo. “With the im­mense suc­cess of the expo, we are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try to en­sure that 100 per­cent lo­cally man­u­fac­tured dairy prod­ucts are in­tro­duced to their kitchens. Our ul­ti­mate goal is to make Sri Lanka self-suf­fi­cient in milk which in­cludes the food sec­tor as well,” Wick­ra­manayake added.
