Our Purpose

Our primary purpose at Araliya Packaging is to provide affordable and comprehensive packaging solutions to the industry at large and cater a much broader wholesale and retail market in Sri Lanka and worldwide. We aim to meet the growing demand for reusable and durable packaging options amongst local and international clients.

Our Process

Our company specializes in the production of non-woven fabrics utilizing three printing methods, namely Flexo, Screen, and Gravure. The raw material used in our manufacturing process is high-grade imported Polypropylene (PP), which is known for its low density, low moisture absorption, mechanical strength, high chemical resistance, and cost-effectiveness. To enhance the properties of our fabrics, we incorporate filler materials in the production process, which improves the water resistance and reduces the amount of Polypropylene (PP) used. Additionally, the use of filler materials enhances the opacity of the films, adds a matte finish, and gives the final product a natural cotton-like softness.

We take pride in our state-of-the-art machinery and advanced technology, which ensures that our production process meets international standards. Our facility holds four ISO certifications, guaranteeing the quality of our final products.
