7 February 2018 - 396   - 2

Perfetti Van Melle (PVM) Sri Lanka, the renowned confectionery company, has announced that they are commencing local production of the much loved brand ‘Mentos’ for the first time in Sri Lanka. This would offer local consumers a wider range of products under the Mentos brand at affordable prices.

As a first step, consumers will now be able to purchase the Mentos Mono at a lower price of Rs. 2, actively helping them ‘break the ice’ in their day-to-day interactions, the company said in a media release on Wednesday.

Mohit Bhalla, Country Manager of PVM Sri Lanka said, “Mentos has been a leading brand for PVM Worldwide and is well-accepted among Sri Lankans for many years. Mentos has helped people make fresh connections across all ages and social strata. The Mentos production line is the latest in Perfetti Van Melle’s significant investments in Sri Lanka. We hope with Mentos being proudly made in Sri Lanka, we will be able to delight Sri Lankan consumers for many more years to come.” - ENDS -
