Contract Grower’s- Uva/ Central/ North-Central
The Contract Grower scheme was first introduced in 1983 in Wattakedeniya by tying up with local farming families in contract-grower partnerships to start their own farms. By providing them with the Cobb 500 chicks and the necessary training and raw materials required for optimum broiler growth, these families successfully produce a high quality product.
At the moment we depend on over 300 families in the Central, North – Central and Uva Provinces, who supply up a third of our broiler output. The scheme was done with the intention to promote local entrepreneurship and develop inter-generational farmers into further sustaining the poultry industry.
