Broiler Farming and Processed Chicken

Over the next two years, the Group plans to improve its commercial broiler operations at the Bulathsinhala Farm. This will be part of an overall restructuring and modernising programme which will be vigorously launched to maximize productivity. The company is committed to improving conditions in its farming operations and increasing productivity overall to ultimately benefit its customers.

The management continues to enforce strict-bio controls with farmers and outgrowers. The Group conducts educational programmes for farmers to make them aware of the modern methods available to protect their livestock and therefore its customers from the threat of this disease.
