Uswatte Confectionery Works, Sri Lanka’s oldest confectionery manufacturer with a history of 63 years, opened their latest factory in their premises at Millaniya. The state-of-the-art factory will focus exclusively on the manufacturing of biscuits and signifies the entry of Uswatte into Sri Lanka’s biscuit market. The factory will be declared open by Honourable Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe including other distinguished Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

The opening of a factory to manufacture Uswatte biscuits brings to life a longstanding dream of the company's Founder Chairman - the late Mr. P.J.C Perera (Christy) - to manufacture and supply premium quality biscuits to the Sri Lankan consumer. Years of meticulous planning and preparation under the dynamic leadership of present Chairman/Managing Director S. Quintus Perera has enabled the company to venture into the highly-competitive biscuit market today.

In order to provide high-quality biscuits, the company has imported the best machinery available for the manufacture of biscuits and utilises both local and foreign expertise. The factory consists of the latest laminator available for the production of biscuits. Additionally, a state-of-the-art baking oven which controls the zone temperature as well as the top and bottom level temperature, burner-by-burner of the zone fully automatically allows the producing of an evenly baked biscuit every time. One of the latest technological features of this oven is the two hybrid zones which help to produce optimum quality biscuits. All Uswatte biscuits are hygienically manufactured to international standards using premium quality raw materials and flavours produced by the world’s best flavouring companies from countries such as the UK, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Chairman, S. Quintus Perera - Chairman/Managing Director of Uswatte Confectionery Works stated, "From the very beginning, our priority was to give high-quality and hygienic products at a reasonable price to the consumer. Our innovative products have become iconic family treats loved by all age groups for generations. This new factory will help us to enter the biscuit market and we are confident our premium quality biscuits will soon become a hit with our consumers. We will continue to innovate and will introduce novel, exciting products for our trusted consumers to enjoy."
