We organize one of the most popular Food Exhibitions in Sri Lanka - " Profoods/Propack" in August every year & a visitor turnaround of approx 20,000 for the three days of the exhibition. Our members who have a good standing for two years get a 10% discount when they book a stall.
Our membership is invited for our AGM conducted annually where valuable industry feedback is shared & the fellowship session which happens afterwards enables the members to network.
Various workshops are held for the members related to food processing & hygienic areas conducted by Professors from Institute of Food Science & Technology.
Members are able to attend International exhibitions & seminars at very concessionary rates due to funding by various business chambers & Government bodies. Some events are fully sponsored by the event organizers.
Keep our members updated regarding various new policies & regulations introduced by the government from time to time.
Proposals & concerns from our members are discussed during policy meetings with the relevant government officials & ministers. A subcommittee from SLFPA is formed due to this effect. Industry concerns are discussed with government representatives & at least bring temporary relief to the sectors. ( example - SLFPA contributed significantly in getting an extension on implementation of Color Coding Regulation, Regulation on Labelling of Product Information after several rounds of discussion with the Ministry of Health as well as the other regulations which were due to be implemented from 1st June 2019)
