Feed Milling Operations

Feed milling operations continues to be the Group’s core business, contributing to 55% of sales in year 2008. It proved a significant one in terms of feed milling in Sri Lanka as a result of the constantly rising costs of raw materials and maize used for feed manufacture. Despite the challenges of 2008 which saw unprecedented increases in world oil prices and starch-rich crops such as maize, the company is optimistic about its feed milling operations.

CGE’s feed mill remains one of the largest in Sri Lanka, supplying more than 27% in 2007 of the local feed consumption. A quarter of this is used in our own breeder and contract broiler farms. CGE mills produce formulated feed for a variety of livestock. 99% of this is poultry feed with 1% supplying the cattle, swine, horse and aqua farms. A prudent investment in upgrading the mill recently has improved productivity and resulted in most of the operation being automated.

The mill enjoys a unique advantage by being positioned in close proximity to the Colombo port. This facilitates the smooth and efficient transfer of imported raw materials from overseas to the silos directly, thus saving precious time & cost.
