Atlas, the nation’s leading school stationery brand was recognized for serving Sri Lanka’s children for over 60 years and facilitating their learning at the SLIM People’s Awards 2021. The brand cemented its position at the helm, walking away with its 2nd consecutive ‘SLIM People’s School Supply Brand of the Year’ award at a ceremony held on March 23, 2021.

Winners at the SLIM People’s Awards presented by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing are chosen through a comprehensive nationwide research conducted by Nielsen Sri Lanka, one of the largest information and research companies in the world. The SLIM People’s Awards stands tall at the top, as it is the public that acts as the panel of judges and rates their favorite brands, and pronounce their verdict.

Atlas fully funds the project and works together with the Ministry of Women and Child Care Services and Sri Lanka’s education authorities to ensure that the benefits of Atlas SipSavi reach the most deserving children.
