Ceylon Biscuits Ltd
   
Ceylon Biscuits Limited commenced operations in July1968 by supplying schools with high protein nutritional biscuits to replace the glass of milk and bun given to schoolchildren to supplement their mid-day meal. Extensive research went in to develop a biscuit with high protein content acceptable to the C.A.R.E. Organisation of the USA and the Ministry of Education. This program was highly successful and continued from 1968 to 1988. In the 80's, CBL entered the domestic and the export market in collaboration with Associated Biscuits Ltd successors to the world famous Huntley Palmers and Jacobs Brands. New machinery was installed to meet the market demand. After a decade of the tie-up when Associated Biscuits International sold their holding, Ceylon Biscuits became partners with Nabisco. They divested their shares before the fragmentation. Today, Ceylon Biscuits under the brand "Munchee" dominate the market with a clear lead of 10% over its rivals. The chocolate expansion in the earlier Nineties was under the "Ritzbury" brand. In addition, to the slab and coated chocolates their hand-moulded speciality chocolate is unrivalled. Very recently an understanding was reached with the world-renowned Ferrero group to manufacture one of their fast selling brands "Tic Tac". Along with Tic Tac CBL will distribute the famous "Ferrero Rocher". In the year 1998, the company invested in a snack food line to introduce "Pancho" Snack range and in 2000, the company bought a 79% stake in Soy Foods (Lanka) Ltd to expand its activities in the food industry. In 1998, the company also expanded its manufacturing base to India and set up a factory to produce biscuits and coated chocolates. Currently Ceylon Biscuits is the largest biscuit manufacturer and exporter in Sri Lanka and has one of the largest distribution networks that cover the entire island.
