CBL launches new Coconut Milk Product – Sera

SeranewsCeylon Biscuits Limited (CBL) recently added a new brand and product line to its portfolio with the launch of ‘Sera‘, a premium liquid coconut milk conveniently available in 180ml UHT packs.  The company has invested over Rs. 2 billion to set up the state of the art factory that extracts, sterilises and hygienically packages coconut milk, using high quality machinery and technology from Europe.
