Australia Day food promotion at premium Cargills Food City outlets in Colombo

The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) together with Cargills Ceylon Ltd. launched an Australia Day food promotion at premium Cargills Food City outlets in Colombo. 

Cargills Ceylon Ltd. over the years has secured many Australian brands including sourcing high quality Australian meats. On promotion this week are many fine Australian food products including Ballantyne butter, Kraft Cheese, Golden Circle fruit juices and various lamb cuts from Fletcher Australia. 

High Commissioner Hutchesson tried his hand at cheffing during a cooking demonstration at Cargills Food City Staple Street outlet involving Executive Sous Chef D.J. Manjula from Heritance Ahungalla. Joining the High Commissioner at the event was Sidath Kodikara – Executive Director Cargills Ceylon Ltd., and Delano Dias – Millers Ltd.

This event coincides with Australia-Sri Lanka trade reaching $1.3 billion for the first time with strong growth in fresh food and supermarket goods. The direct flight between Melbourne and Colombo now makes it easier to get the best of Australian fresh food to Sri Lankan customers, including supermarkets and hotels. 

High Commissioner Hutchesson said, “I see very strong potential for the economic relationship to grow between our countries, built on the complementarities in our respective economies. As part of this, sale of Australian fresh food, beverages and supermarket goods will grow strongly on the back of demand from discerning Sri Lankan consumers and tourists. I encourage shoppers to choose Australian next time they visit a Cargills store.”
