Ceylon Grain Elevators PLC
From its humble beginnings as a feed miller, CGE gradually expanded its business operation with decades of expertise in the poultry industry. In an attempt to support its valued customer base by creating a sustainable domestic market for the poultry feed, CGE secured the rights to source DOCs and to commence operations of its own breeder farms and hatcheries. Continuing to support its customers and the local industry, CGE started the buy-back operation along with the own broiler farm operation. Similarly, a need for supplying high quality poultry vaccines, medicines and equipment was evident with the gradual expansion of the market. In order fulfill the market gap and to support our existing customers, CGE partnered with world’s leading poultry vaccines and equipment manufacturers to import and resell across the country.
At present, CGE stands tall as the largest integrated poultry & cattle feed business in the country while maintaining market leadership in all business categories it operates. The company introduced a range of special customized feed for high yielding dairy cattle in line with the Sri Lankan government’s efforts to increase domestic liquid milk production.
