“Calgary AB is a leading trading Company based in Canada and we have also secured a large seafood order from one of Canada’s leading food suppliers, Vaaniy Food Inc. for Sri Lanka sea food.”

“Fulfilling this order we exported Sri Lankan sea food via Lanka Sea food packaging company in a first 40ft container valued at USD25,000. This order is continuing.”
