Quik Pak (Pvt) Ltd, a producer of paper sacks used to pack tea, was felicitated with the Gold award for Packaging and Paper Related Industries at the National Industrial Excellence Awards 2022 recently.

Quik Pak’s Managing Director Mohommed Ajmal accepted the award at the awards ceremony organised by the Industrial Development Board at Waters Edge, Battaramulla with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the chief guest and then Industries Minister Wimal Weerawansa as the guest of honour. Quik Pak (Pvt) Ltd, which started off with a seed investment of Rs. 20,000 in 1992 saw massive growth in the following years. During a time when boxes were used for packaging tea, tea packaging bags were introduced as a more convenient and easier method.

However, these packets were not manufactured in Sri Lanka, and thus had to be imported. During that time, Quik Pak stepped in and introduced a method in which these can be manufactured within the country. These packs are now exported to over 20 countries including USA, China, France, Argentina, South Africa, Vietnam, Indonesia and India since 2005 and it is making a great contribution towards the flow of foreign currency into Sri Lanka, a spokesman for the company said.

The company manufactures over 25,000 packs a day and has currently created over 300 jobs in the industry. Quik Pak tea packaging is manufactured to be eco-friendly, recyclable and biodegradable and is of the highest quality international standards. Quik Pak has also received international quality certificates due to this.

Managing Director Mohommed Ajmal said, “Our product is on demand both locally and internationally because we handle all industry decisions by taking the consumer into consideration. The secret of this success is the fact that we have protected the consumer’s trust in us for years. We are ready to be innovative in the future as well. I would like to extend our thank you towards the consumers who have placed their trust in us, all our stakeholders and our valuable staff members.”
