The presentation ceremony of the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Award to Farmchemie Limited is scheduled to be held at 6:30 p.m. on 31 January 2013 at The Eagle, Waters Edge, Battaramulla.

The Chief Guest, amongst the many distinguished invitees to witness this milestone, will be the Director General of Department of Animal Production and Health Dr. W.K. de Silva.

Farmchemie became the first and only veterinary pharmaceutical company in Sri Lanka to hold the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 Quality Award when United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) elected to present this important award to Farmchemie via SGS United Kingdom Ltd. Systems and Services Certification following a comprehensive systems audit by SGS Lanka Ltd.

One of the key factors of success of this company lies in identifying the needs of the grass-root level farmers.   For the convenience of the small-scale farmers, their products are converted into smaller pack sizes, whilst ensuring the stringent quality standards of the suppliers.  

According to the management, their highest achievement over the years is being able to carry out the re-packing of the products as well as formulate our own brand of vitamin and mineral premixes, under the brand name ‘FarmStar,’ in their own factory complex.

Although started as a very small business, Farmchemie has always been quality conscious and has looked out for ways and means to enhance the services. Recognising the need of educating the farming community to uplift standards, Farmchemie started conducting a series of awareness programs islandwide. These were a resounding success as Farmers were able to find solutions to their problems and broaden their knowledge at the same time.

Due to introduction of new technologies and sharing of technical know-how among the farmers, as well as due to the superior range of their products, they were able to win the trust of the farming community in a very short span of time resulting in Farmchemie becoming the market leader in the animal health sector.

In July 2002 Farmchemie (Private) Limited was incorporated in Sri Lanka as a limited liability company and commenced operations on a very small scale.  Farmchemie is registered under the Dept. of Animal Production and Health as an Importer and Distributor of Veterinary Pharmaceuticals Feed Additives and Biologicals.

To fulfil the primary objective of supplying inputs essential for the Livestock and Agriculture sectors, only the premium quality products from prominent suppliers such as Invesa of Spain, Nutristar of France, Dyntec of Czech Republic, Veterina of Croatia, Degussa of Germany, Huvepharma of Bulgaria and CEVA of France were selected.

During the past ten years, Farmchemie has been developing a quality range of veterinary pharmaceuticals, feed additives, biologicals and poultry equipment, and this implementation of product introduction scheme, which constantly matches the current market demands, has already played a significant role in uplifting the agriculture industry of Sri Lanka.

With the contribution of the qualified and dedicated Sales team, backed by the highly motivated team of support services, Farmchemie is ready to conquer the challenges of the industry and face the future with confidence.  They pledge to improve the agriculture industry of Sri Lanka whilst ensuring the trust placed in them is never misplaced.
