Perfetti Van Melle (PVM) Sri Lanka, the renowned confectionery company, recently announced that they are commencing local manufacturing of its much loved brand ‘Mentos’ for the first time in Sri Lanka, enabling them to offer 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. 

Commenting on the project, PVM Sri Lanka Country Manager Mohit Bhalla said, “Mentos has been a leading brand for PVM Worldwide and is well-accepted and omnipresent 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.”

This milestone was marked at a recent launch event presided over by Huub Sanders, President – PVM Business Unit for South Asia, Middle East and Africa; Ramesh Jayaraman, Managing Director – PVM India; and also attended by other distinguished invitees and business partners including distributors, sales personnel, company representatives and well-wishers.

Mentos is one of PVM’s most recognised and loved brands globally, and was made popular in Sri Lanka in the late ‘90s.First produced in 1948 in Netherlands, Mentos is currently being sold in over 130 countries. 

PVM Sri Lanka has been introducing new and innovative products to Sri Lanka ever since it was established, and the installation of this new line which manufactures Mentos and Mentos Marbels, among others, is yet another great addition to this range. Other well established brands manufactured at PVM’s state-of-the-art factory in Seeduwa include Center Fresh, Center Fruit, Center Shock, Alpenliebe, and Alpenliebe Creamfills.
