Fortune G-P Farms (Pvt) Ltd., is a Rs 100 million project and a joint venture between Bairaha Farms PLC, Farms pride (Pvt) Ltd. and Cobb-Vantress Inc. USA. The Company was established in 2006 in a remote 100-acre isolated piece of land off Galewela and in a separate 10-acre piece of land, a state-of-the-art hatchery was built at Dambulla.
This venture produces 55% percent of the local poultry industry’s requirements of broiler parent stock and also exports quality parent stock to Nepal and Bangladesh.
The cost of an imported parent breeder chicks including freight charges is around US$ 6.5, consequentially valuable foreign exchange is saved as a result of the local grandparent operation producing and supplying broiler parent chicks to the local market.
Because of the local operation, local broiler breeding Companies have an edge in buying breeding chicks from Sri Lanka without the difficulty of clearing chicks from customs with a cost-saving benefit, whilst also benefiting immensely as stress is minimized to chicks during transportation.
