Malindu products are manufactured with the use of state-of-the-art machinery and 100% fresh cow and buffalo milk, and adhering to the prescribed health and safety guidelines.
They have received many other awards including the Silver Award in the medium-scale dairy and associated products category at the Industrial Excellence Awards organised by the Industrial Development Board (IDB). They have also received various quality certifications such as the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification and ISO 14001 and ISO 22000. Through constant research and development, Malindu Dairy maintains and promotes the high-quality standards of their products. “I am delighted that we have run our business successfully, overcoming challenges encountered in a difficult time that we all had to face. We as entrepreneurs will have to face a lot of challenges in the future too. I urge the authorities to pay attention to these inhibitors,” said Manjula Nishantha.
