Noritake Lanka Porcelain unveiled its latest range of fine porcelain, bone china, stoneware and cutlery at the Hilton Colombo. The theme of the evening revolved around the Nil Manel – the blue lotus – which symbolises many of the aspects that are shared by the creed of Noritake, such as ‘Harmonious Co-existence’, ‘Mutual prosperity’, ‘Social contribution’, ‘Trust first’ and ‘Cooperation with integrity’.
Noritake Lanka Porcelain (NLPL) is the Sri Lanka’s pioneer porcelain manufacturer and is the largest in the island. As a fully-owned subsidiary of Noritake Co. of Japan – a company that has a 110-year-old history – NLPL is one of the many branches of Noritake spread across the globe.
For well over a century, Noritake has been able to hallmark the highest standards in fine porcelain tableware around the world. NLPL has been supplying fine customised Hotel & Restaurant ware to almost all the Five Star hotels, to a large number of resort hotels as well as small luxury hotels (SLH) in Sri Lanka since its inception. Noritake ware is free from Lead, Cadmium & Zealanium and retains a very high level of whiteness and translucency. NLPL’s products are able to withstand wide temperature ranges and are highly durability.
The invitations for the event of unveiling its latest range of fine Porcelain ware, Stoneware and Cutlery encompassed the synergy between Japan and Sri Lanka, utilising the Japanese art of paper folding – origami – to create the blue lotus. The evening commenced with a scintillating lotus dance which was followed by a welcome address by the Chairman of Noritake Lanka Porcelain (Pvt) Limited, Y Mubachi.
The vote of thanks was given by Director/General Manager, Sujatha Egodagedera and soon after a raffle draw was held with the giving away of valuable prizes for three lucky guests at the event.
