Delmo Chicken and Agro Ltd. Chairman and Managing Director Sumith Perera stated, “Sri Lanka is known to be the foremost modern poultry industry in the South Asian region. The new hatchery is a proud moment for the Delmo family and goes onto exhibit the continued effort of the domestic poultry industry in investing in modern scientific technology.”

Its boiler production farms, processing plants and equipment are equipped with the latest evolving technologies which are on par with international standards and these are well reflected in the company’s certifications and accreditations such as GMP, HACCP, ISO 22000 amongst various others with all its products halal certified. 

Delmo has earned a reputation for its outstanding product quality and excellence in customer satisfaction throughout the years in a market where chicken meat is highly popular due to its affordability and versatile source of protein.

The company has its operations based in Udugampola in the Gampaha district and is a pioneer in production, processing and marketing of broiler chicken in the region.
