Rising star Quebee Den has once again been awarded one of Sri Lanka's highest accolades with its Founder/CEO Rohanthi Wijewickrama adjudged the winner at the Junior Chamber International's (JCI) “Top 10 Outstanding Persons of Sri Lanka”, for her Economic and Entrepreneurial accomplishments.
Having understood the importance of an all-natural range of infant products in the Sri Lankan market while she was developing a ready-to-eat infant puree for her own son, Rohanthi established Quebee Den in 2014. The company currently manufactures a 100 percent infant-safe foods range that is not only highly nutritional but also offers a guarantee of no added preservatives.
Quebee Den offers the highly popular “Bellybees” range, that features a range of fruit and vegetable purees, including tasty and nutritious blends such as Pumpkin, Vegetables/Dhal & Red Rice, Carrots & Red Rice, Banana, Apple & Cinnamon, Papaya & Mandarin and Mango. It also produces a toddler rusk range and a line of infant cereals.
Thanks to her various efforts in promoting sustainability focusing on changing the livelihood of the next generation, Rohanthi has this year alone been honoured at Sri Lanka's Entrepreneur Awards, while also receiving the International Women CEO Award and 2nd Best Start up in Sri Lanka at Venture Engine 2016 prior to that. She is also a published author of 8 children’s books, and a Director of Cerestar (Pvt) Ltd and Dairymate (Pvt) Ltd.
“We are not just about having a product on the shelf.. at Quebee Den we want to create a safe and healthy environment for your young one so they can focus on achieving their own dreams. “ I have long studied the importance of a child’s earliest years to his or her healthy development and how healthy food is important in that factor. That is why bellybees infant range consists of 100% natural ingredients. With the advice from leading pediatricians, child philologists and early childhood educators we have introduced these to the market in support of families in their quest to make healthy feeding choices for their babies” stated Rohanthi.
“Winning this prestigious award from an organization such as JCI who is recognized worldwide puts Quebee Den on the world map making us hopeful and inspiring us to achieve greater heights.” Continued Rohanthi.
