our story

  • We started our journey as a consumer goods company that emphasizes on safe and healthy convenient products for a household. It was our mission to re-invent the future that gained us popularity among the infant food manufacturers of Sri Lanka.

    As the company grew, we launched our range of Flash Cards focusing on providing skills to the new digital savvy generation while uplifting the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of the industry, community, and the world.


    With the advice from leading pediatricians, child psychologist, and early childhood educators we have introduced these to the market in support of families in their quest to creating a fun learning environment for their children.

  • Our family brand "Bellybees" began its journey with products ranging from Infant Food, Toddler Food and Kids Food all consisting of 100% natural raw materials with no added preservatives. With the recent expansion, Bellybees now carries over 50 products dedicated to a fun learning environment ranging from flashcards, books, toys, stationary, puzzles other consumer products supporting sustainable living supporting local artisans and SME's.

    ​As our children grew up we wanted to be a part of their lives journey and as time passed by the bellybees brand evolved into one of the largest family brands in Sri Lanka creating a fun, sustainable life around our loved ones and creating a lifestyle within the family.

  • It all started in Minnesota in 2002, a little sketch during my marketing class evolved into a big dream.  Of course I had no working capital so my drawings were just a hobby.

    Years later, after we moved to Canada, we came across my box of dreams. Only then, I began to do my research, product testing in my own kitchen, reading and researching... After we moved back to Sri Lanka in 2013 we immediately understood the potential the Sri Lankan market has and the untapped resources waiting to be utilized.   

    We began our work on a ready-to-eat nutritional product that’s suitable for the growing children of Sri Lanka.  Of course my son was only 5 months at the time so it gave us first had experience into the world of infant taste buds and only then the company “Quebee Den (Pvt) Ltd” was established and the brand, BELLYBEES was born.

  • Within minutes of our first trade show, we knew we were onto something BIG. Together, with our amazing team, we continued to use our strengths in design and creative innovation to bring new products to the market. And very quickly, my classroom dream grew to be one of the most recognized brands in the Infant food industry of Sri Lanka.  Today, bellybees is in par with worldwide brands and available in all supermarkets throughout Sri Lanka and opened our new location in Canada.

    As our kids grew up so did the company and we introduced a few more product ranges to keep up with the changes and to be able to tackle those ever-increasing demands that we face as parents.
