History

Maggi was launched in Sri Lanka in 1964. Maggi noodles has since been a trusted household favourite in the country for generations, winning the hearts of adults and children alike.

Its popular Classic noodles range - Maggi Chicken, Maggi Curry and Maggi Tikiri – is fortified with calcium and vitamin A, providing consumers 1/3 of the recommended dietary intake for these micronutrients. The much loved noodles are also enhanced with popular ‘home ingredients’ typically found in Sri Lankan kitchens, such as turmeric, nutmeg, coriander, cumin and cardamom.

In 1986, Nestlé Lanka decided to put its excess milk powder production capacity to good use and manufacture coconut milk in powder form, offering Sri Lankan housewives easy convenience. The product, which we marketed under the Maggi brand, used exclusively Sri Lankan coconuts to ensure a fresh and delicious taste.

Maggi Coconut Milk Powder is manufactured exclusively at our factory in Kurunegala today, supplying markets all over the world through Nestlé’s extensive global distribution channels. As one of the largest exporters of coconut milk powder in the world, we have a far reaching impact on Sri Lanka’s rural economy.

Maggi Rasa Musu is an all-purpose seasoning, which has captured the taste of real ingredients like onion and garlic, and select Sri Lankan spices such as nutmeg, cumin seeds, fenugreek, chilli and turmeric. It can be used in a wide variety of traditional Sri Lankan dishes to enhance taste. This easy to use, affordable product is also fortified with iron, ensuring your dish is not just tastier but healthier too.
