Especially-designed to cater to local palettes

Pyramid Wilmar, the company behind Sri Lanka’s number one edible oil – Fortune, officially launched MEADOWLEA, a product of Goodman Fielder Australia and widely known to be one of Australia’s favourite spreads. The launch ceremony held at Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo was patronized by the Board of Directors of Pyramid Wilmar among many other distinguished guests.

Made with the goodness of sunflower oil, MEADOWLEA is a fat spread that offers a delicious creamy taste and is enriched with essential nutrients such as Vitamin A, D and E. These nutrients support better eyesight, help absorb calcium and phosphorus from food while also helping to maintain a healthy immune system in children. MEADOWLEA is especially designed to cater to the palettes of Sri Lankan consumers and to be used across multiple applications including spreading, cooking and baking. The locally-manufactured new MEADOWLEA was tested among Sri Lankan consumers for the overall product delivery and proved to be a winning formula among them. The product adheres to the highest international and local quality standards and helps cater to local consumers’ nutritional needs at an affordable price.

Goodman Fielder Australia, a company with over a century of excellence in the food industry, is an associate company of Pyramid Wilmar Private Limited. MEADOWLEA is manufactured at Pyramid Wilmar’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Muthurajawela and is available in three pack sizes – 100g (Rs.90), 250g (Rs.220) and 500g (Rs.420) – at outlets island-wide.

Expressing his views at the MEADOWLEA launch, Sajjad Mawzoon – Managing Director of Pyramid Wilmar stated, “Our vision is to transform the lives of Sri Lankan consumers and make available to them world-class products which will enhance their quality of life. I am proud to state that the synergies and experience of Goodman Fielder and Pyramid Wilmar, in their spreads and margarine business have been instrumental in producing MEADOWLEA in Sri Lankan soil.
