Tell us how your business came into being.

Starting as a small milk shop popularly reputed known as ‘Kiri Kade’, we are celebrated for our fresh milk and its flavoured variants. Since then, we have expanded our services to other regions of the country. Now, we have our own manufacturing plant at our very first location, in Wellewatta where we manufacture our variety of dairy products. Today, we are well known around Colombo as Milky Fresh Dairies.

 

How does your business differentiate itself in the industry?

We are one of the reputed suppliers of Fresh Milk & Milk Products in Colombo. We saw a gap in the market and the quality of the service the local dairy industries had to offer. We thought we would remedy this. Our USP is our quality of fresh milk and milk product, our competitive pricing and exemplary door to door service.

 

What are some of the business challenges you face?
The challenge we face is to get more supply quantity from our farmers. Due to the Economic crisis raw material suppliers have become a problem.  Getting our farmers to supply more milk, so that we can manufacture more products like cheese etc.
