  • Gold Marie clinches Superior Taste Award yet again

Maliban Gold Marie, the all-time children’s favourite, recently bagged a Superior Taste Award by International Taste Institute (ITI) in Brussels, in recognition of the biscuit’s milky and sweet taste that appeals to many.

Headquartered in Belgium, ITI tests and certifies consumer food and drink products available around the world. Adjudged by an esteemed panel of international chefs, the award attests to the superior taste and quality of Maliban Gold Marie.  

The ITI award stands as a testament to Maliban’s guarantee – a flavourful and tasty experience with every bite. With the re-launch of the iconic Maliban Gold Marie, the delicious biscuits are composed of wholesome and nutritious ingredients enriched with Vitamin A, B, D and E, along with a freshly accentuated milky flavour – meeting the demands of its consumers. Aside from its nutritious benefits, the soft and crunchy texture of Maliban Gold Marie pairs well with a hot beverage such as milk or tea, making it the ultimate snack for any occasion.

In order to win the Superior Taste Award by ITI, the Gold Marie biscuits were subjected to many stringent tests and evaluations, scoring according to the expectations from its category. Demonstrating the expertise of the judging panel, the external and independent members of the jury comprised head sommeliers and chefs from many Michelin-star restaurants across various European countries, such as El Bulli (Spain), Ledoyen (Paris), Le Ritz (Paris) and Le Jules Vernes (Paris). Renowned for exceptional proficiency, know-how and skill, these taste experts are prominent in cooking for many renowned personalities such as the President of France, the Queen of England, Elton John and more – further validating the credibility of the judging process.

Speaking on this achievement, Maliban Biscuits Managing Director Kumudika Fernando commented, “This award is a direct recognition of Maliban’s strong culture of quality. Being in such an industry, we understand that customer preferences and satisfaction are of paramount importance. Having said that, this award will continue to push us further in our journey to bring international recognition to our products, which in turn will benefit our end consumers.”

Since its inception in 1954 as Sri Lanka’s pioneer biscuit manufacturing company, Maliban has been the golden standard, with their use of world-class ingredients and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Exporting products since 1964, Maliban caters not only to the wider requirements of the domestic market but also to over 32 countries across five continents. As a company with an exemplary history and excellent service of six decades, Maliban’s determination to uphold the highest quality standards in production is one of the main reasons as to why the company has been able to retain its position as the best in terms of biscuit manufacturing in Sri Lanka.
