Clinches Silver for Innovative Brand of the Year
Velona Cuddles, a leading brand in the hygiene and clothing segment in Sri Lanka has been rewarded with the Silver award for “Innovative Brand of the Year” at the recently concluded SLIM Brand Excellence Awards 2020. This latest recognition is a testament to the company’s focus on innovative service offerings in terms of product, packaging and distribution, conceptualized by understanding interests of the customers and it further reinforces Velona’s position as the leading diaper brand in Sri Lanka.
The SLIM Brand Excellence Awards, organized by Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM), celebrates the outstanding performances of corporates, their dedication and commitment to consumer driven initiatives and innovative market approaches.
The innovative and pioneering solutions have orchestrated remarkable wins for Velona and this prestigious award reflects its resilience in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and its repercussions. Revolutionizing Sri Lanka’s baby diaper market, Velona Cuddles came to the fore and showcased an innovative line of products with the launch of its Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Bamboo Diapers and 100% Biodegradable Bamboo Water Wipes in 2020, which have been awarded with Australian Toxic Free and Allergy Certifications.
In an industry first initiative, Velona Cuddles became the first FMCG brand to launch a subscription-based app to deliver its products having identified the need to provide convenience in purchasing regularly used products such as diapers.
