In the Late 1980’s, inside the backyard of founder Siraj Wahid’s humble home, the brand “Starlight” had already begun silently laying its foundation.
Hand crafted in wooden boxes and stamped with a steel mould, his beloved mother found her way of providing his many siblings with a cost effective approach of caring for their clothes. This physical composition of laundry soap enlightened within him an idea that would later go on to become a leading competitor and a nationally recognized brand in SriLanka’s household market.
Built on a 3 Acre block of land in 1996 with state of the art facilities, Starlight was established on the vision of creating products on a “Value For Money” basis with the consumers’ best interest at heart.
Star Holdings is one of the few names – which is instantly recognized as a true Sri Lankan brand, that took on mighty multinationals and went on to redefine ‘Customer Satisfaction.’
