Nov 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka's first state run FMCG Loyalty Card will be launched on 8 November, Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said.

The largest retail supermarket chain in the country, Lanka Sathosa Ltd (LSL) is embarking on this major initiative to expand its customer base while meeting the competition.

"Our work is aimed at giving the best to the local consumer while facing competition," said Minister Bathiudeen recently during a discussion with his officials at the Ministry ahead of the launch event of the LSL "Abhimana" loyalty card on 8 November in Battaramulla.

"Lanka Sathosa Limited (LSL) expanded its island-wide branch network to 423 and has become the largest supermarket chain in Sri Lanka today. LSL Loyalty Card holders will be able to use the card in any branch, with many benefits including discounts from the 423 outlets" said Minister Bathiudeen and added: "The "Abhimana" card is Sri Lanka's first ever government owned Consumer Loyalty Card in FMCG sector and I commend Lanka Sathosa staff, its sales and marketing teams for their work on it."

A nominal subscription fee is to be levied when the Abhimana Card is first issued to the consumer while it is to be issued free of charge to pensioners, government employees, and the military personnel.
