Danny Perera initiated his business in the Keselwatte area in Colombo in the 1930s with a staff of six. However, in 1973, Danny’s son-in-law, Munidasa Perera shifted the company to Panadura as ‘Chandima Sweet Mart’. Later on, Munidasa shifted the ‘Chandima Sweet Mart’ to Ganemulla. In 1995 ‘Chandima Sweet Mart’ was re-named as ‘New Perera & Sons’ giving a trendy look. With the passage of time, there had been a staff of about ten who were family members. On the 15th of September 2015, Chandima Perera (Munidasa Perera's Son) took measures to revise the name of the trade as ‘ New Perera Sweets’, and to date, it shines in the same name.
By now the strength of the staff of ‘New Perera Sweets’ is around 20 to 30. Expanding the services of ‘New Perera Sweets’ Chandima has taken steps to supply his products to retailers in Sri Lanka while distributing the products to the companies such as Ceylon Cold Stores, Cargills Ice Cream & Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL). The volume of our product supply is more than 15 tons per month. ‘New Perera Sweets’ also exports their products to countries in the Gulf Region. Also, initiatives have been taken to export the products to Australia under the name of ‘Araliya Products’ and 'Kelani Lanka'. Another point worth talking about is the adaption of traditional recipes for products of ‘New Perera Sweets’ to make them much more tastier.
