Nestlé’s Maggi Coconut Milk Powder, Nespray Nutri-Up and Nescafé Ice Coffee RTD (Ready-To-Drink) were recognised for their high quality standards at the recent SLSI (Sri Lanka Standards Institution) Certification Awards. The company’s Sales Promotions department also received the SLSI Certification for ‘Good Manufacturing Practices’ for sampling operations, making it the first such operation in Sri Lanka to do so.

SLSI is the National Standards Body in Sri Lanka and a member of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). An SLSI Certification signifies that a product is manufactured in compliance with Sri Lanka Standard Specifications, and can be purchased with an assurance of quality. Continuous compliance is assured by regularly monitoring the company’s quality assurance system via audits and product testing.

I would like to congratulate the company for working together as a team to successfully take up the challenge of obtaining the SLS Certification. By achieving these Certifications, the company has gained a label of recognition for complying with quality management standards. I am confident that Nestlé Lanka will maintain their high levels of standards”

“The SLS product certification mark is a symbol of quality, with the product being certified by an independent government body.” Said Mr. T.G.G. Dharmawardana, Director General of the Sri Lanka Standards Institution. “The people of Sri Lanka can purchase Nestlé Lanka’s products with more confidence.”

Other Nestlé products with SLSI Certification are Nestlé Cerelac and Nestlé Milkmaid.
