Sri Lanka, an island country in South Asia known for its natural beauty and tea, has been experiencing a severe financial crisis that has impacted every sector of business, including its label printing industry. The Sri Lankan label industry has faced difficulties purchasing raw materials such as ink and paper, as well as capital equipment — in short, everything needed to run a label printing business.
Despite global economic setbacks, the country’s label printing industry has shown resilience and adaptability. Industry players have navigated the challenges and are now positioned for growth, according to discussions at Sri Lanka Print 2023 hosted by the Sri Lanka Association of Printers (SLAP) held jointly with Lankapak 2023.
SLAP president, Anil Kariyawasam, says: ‘We are delighted to witness the incredible talent and dedication of the Sri Lanka print community. The quality of printing is of international standards and is a testament to the industry’s progress. There is clear evidence of how far we have developed the industry, which today employs over 300,000 people in 4,000 printing facilities across the country.’
