Crysbro is the leading poultry company in Sri Lanka made up of five board of investment (BOI )companies in a fully integrated process, working together towards the company’s vision.
Celebrating Our First Golden Jubilee
Since CRYSBRO’s inception in 1972, the founding father of CRYSBRO has never compromised on three key elements; hygiene, quality, and trust. With a genuine passion for excellence in our product for nearly fifty years, we have built a reputation and a promise for delivering the best culinary experience for customers to delight in.
In 1972, a determined young man with an unbridled vision to create the best culinary experience revolution in poultry made his way into the industry. Mohamed Imtiaz, the founder of CRYSBRO, over the years, has laid the formula for great chicken by refining breeding, processing, and packaging, making CRYSBRO the only ‘Chicken Specialist’ in Sri Lanka with an unparalleled reputation for quality and freshness.
Mohamed Imtiaz chose Sri Lanka’s finest lands, the central highlands, to set up his farms. Generally, animals raised in such lush conditions are wholesome, moist, tender, and naturally taste better. Quality always speaks louder, and with the confidence and approval of satisfied customers, CRYBRO’s development into new territories expands as does her place in the market as a leading player and chicken exporter.
Known to drop the odd pearl of wisdom, our founding father drives the idea of ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’ through the values and norms of the company as a whole to ensure quality is never second to profit. Therefore, when it comes to our customers, CRYSBRO leads with the utmost care to fulfill every need, be it taste, cleanliness, or value for money.
Started with 100 Chickens
The story of CRYSBRO began in 1972 when our founder, Mohamed Imtiaz,was gifted 100 chickens by his mother. The young lad of 17, blessed with vision and exceptional business acumen, took the initiative to build what has emerged as Sri Lanka’s most scientifically managed chicken producer, with professional staff, state-of-the-art facilities and a most sought-after brand of farm-fresh chicken.

While most of Sri Lanka has a warm and arid climate, CRYSBRO’s chicken breeding, processing and packing facilities are located in the chilly climes of the central highlands, among lush, cool, mountains, blessed with fresh and clean, flowing waters. While providing a healthy climate for breeding and processing, this also gives credence to our claim of offering ‘Fresh, Upcountry Chicken’ to our customers.
STATE-OF-THE-ART BREEDING AND PROCESSING
All machinery and equipment are the very latest and conforming to international standards. Recent investments in fully automated machinery and processes have doubled our processing capability. We continuously work towards finding solutions to efficient and ethical poultry processing challenges such as poultry welfare, environmental sustainability, biosecurity, food safety, processing flexibility and production optimization.
UPLIFTING THE LIVES OF THE FARMING COMMUNITY
Our farm lands are located in Dehiyattakandiya, Girandurukotte and Kantalai, where we carry out large-scale cultivation of maize, rice soya and other grains, which form the basic ingredients of chicken feed. In addition to direct employment for farmers on our own land, through year-round crop rotation, we also purchase grain from farming families in these regions, thereby offering a steady income and uplifting their lives.
ENSURING THE VERY BEST FEED FOR OUR CHICKEN
Our Feed Mill Plant is located at weerambugedara, Kurunegala, where the harvested grains are turned into chicken feed. This is Sri Lanka's largest and most modern livestock feed plant to date, requiring 120,000 tons of corn each year as input. This requires the cultivation of 60,000 acres of corn, which is also out-sourced from the farmers living in the Wayamba province. The processed feed is stored in our own silos under stringent hygienic conditions.
