Royal Cashews Clinches Prestigious Gold Star at Lanka Star Awards Celebrating Excellence in Packaging

In a testament to its commitment to quality and innovation, Royal Cashews, Sri Lanka’s pioneering industrialized cashew processing company, secured the prestigious Gold Star at the ‘Lanka Star Awards – 2019,’ an annual ceremony recognizing excellence in packaging. The event, organized by the Sri Lanka Institute of Packaging, took place at the Kingsbury Hotel, Colombo, on September 12, 2019.

The Gold Star awarded to Royal Cashews was a remarkable achievement, standing out in the category of ‘Rigid Packaging.’ The winning packaging, titled ‘Premium Sri Lankan King Size Cashews with Premium Sri Lankan 9 Spicy Flavours,’ showcased the company’s dedication to providing a premium and flavorful experience to its customers.

This accolade marks the second time Royal Cashews has been recognized at the ‘Lanka Star Awards.’ The company previously received the ‘Lanka Star President’s Award’ and ‘Gold Award’ in the Best Eco-Friendly Packaging category, reinforcing its commitment to sustainable practices.

Dr. Ruwan Wathugala, Chairman and Managing Director of Royal Cashews, expressed his delight at the latest Gold Star award. He emphasized the company’s use of cutting-edge technology, hygienic processing conditions, and world-recognized standards, showcasing the commitment to quality that goes hand in hand with their meticulous packaging.

“Royal Cashews is the only company in Sri Lanka bestowed with all the standard certifications needed for green-oriented cashew processing and packaging,” said Dr. Wathugala. The company holds ISO 14001:2015 EMS certification for international green-oriented processing, as well as ISO 22000, HACCP, and GMP certifications for standardized food processing.

With a network of 20 outlets island-wide, Royal Cashews boasts the largest distribution network for cashew products in Sri Lanka. These outlets offer a diverse range of hygienically packed cashews, catering to both local and international clients.

The company’s commitment to customer convenience is evident with the recent introduction of the ‘Online Delivery System.’ This service allows customers to order products online, receiving fresh Royal Cashew products delivered directly to their doorsteps.

Royal Cashews takes pride in offering products with 19 distinct flavors, packaged in 682 different containers, including 101 specially designed gift items. The brand’s global footprint extends to Malaysia, Japan, USA, UK, New Zealand, Germany, Australia, Austria, Maldives, and Saudi Arabia.

Accolades and awards have become synonymous with the Royal Cashews brand. Pro Food 2009 and 2011 awards for nature-friendly packaging, the MACO Business Excellence Award, Lanka Star President’s Gold Award, and the ASIASTAR 2015 award for Green packaging further underscore the brand’s commitment to excellence.

Royal Food Marketing, the parent company of Royal Cashews, has two subsidiaries: Green Way Asia Lanka and Trust Lanka Suppliers, further solidifying its presence and impact in the industry.

As Royal Cashews continues to soar with recognition, awards, and a dedication to quality, it cements its position as a trailblazer in the world of cashew processing and packaging.
