Milo Encouraging an Active Lifestyle Through School Sports
Nestlé Lanka has been committed to developing school sports in the country for well over 15 years. We have been an energetic partner in the school sports arena, supporting different sporting events through our Milo brand be it swimming, cricket, netball, athletics or rugby.
The grand finale of most of these sporting events is the Sri Lanka Schools Colours Awards (Milo Colours) which honour the best sports stars in recognition of their performance. These awards are unequivocally accepted as the ultimate acknowledgement of achievement in school sports in Sri Lanka today. Furthermore all students who win a Milo Colours award receive a bonus point towards their university entrance examination.

Our present Milo brand ambassador, Angelo Mathews, was a recipient of the Milo school colours for two consecutive years. Mathews went on to represent the country in cricket and is presently the Captain of the national Test and ODI (One Day International) cricket team.
We strive to instill an interest in sports among youth for reasons of health, wellness, discipline and leadership. By identifying, nurturing and fine-tuning young talent, we have been able to contribute to raising the overall standards of sports at school level and empower the lives of hundreds of thousands of promising athletes every year.
