Delmo Chicken and Agro (Pvt) Limited is a leading poultry production, processing and marketing company in Sri Lanka and its products are marketed island wide under the brand name of "Delmo Broiler Chicken and parts''.
The company was founded in 1988 by its present Chairman/ Managing Director Mr Sumith Perera as a back yard poultry production business. Initially known as Delmo Farm, the company's core business activities had been production, processing and marketing of poultry products and its operations were mainly limited to Gampaha and Colombo districts at that time. Through Mr Sumith Perera's sheer dedication, commitment and excellent customer focus "Delmo Chicken" was soon gaining popularity among consumers in the region and became a house- hold name for Broiler chicken.
However, with its limited manual processing capacity and cold storage facilities which affected further growth of business, the company, after much thought, decided to do away with processing and marketing temporarily. The strategy was to consolidate on growing operation and re- enter in to processing and marketing business at a later stage, in a more organized and competitive manner with the use of new technology.
