At present, only 40% of the country’s demand is met by fresh milk, with the remaining demand addressed by powdered milk imports. Currently, the country cannot meet the fresh milk demand due to the shortage of milk, Chairman of Lanka Milk Foods (CWE) PLC Deshamanya Harry Jayawardena stated.
“In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this need to be further heightened. At present, only 40% of the country’s demand is met by fresh milk, with the remaining demand addressed by powdered milk imports, thus leaving significant room for domestic growth. The continued transition from powdered milk to liquid milk is a favourable development in this regard, and Lanka Milk Foods is uniquely positioned to capture this emerging market. Our farms produce international standard milk, unfortunately, we cannot meet the fresh milk demand due to the shortage of milk,” Jayawardena told shareholders in the annual report 2019/20.
However, Jayewardene stated that their new project ‘United Dairies Lanka’, established with the aim of increasing the herd and quality milk within farms will ensure that they can reduce the quantity of imported milk powder and replace it with the best fresh milk available in the country.
Speaking further he also expressed the following:
“The Lanka Milk Foods Group is committed towards meeting stakeholder needs through strategic expansion, quality improvement mechanisms and national self-sufficiency in milk production and we embark in a 3 billion dairy farm.
“In a bid to improve stakeholder satisfaction, we are focused on fulfilling the future demand for fresh milk with the commencement of a new project at Ambewela, aimed at increasing our cattle herd and thereby increasing the production of milk.”
“ Our continued focus remains on expanding market share across our business categories through enhanced distribution channels and investment into our portfolio of brands.”
“ Our dedication to quality and customer-centricity continues to hold us in good stead, ensuring our pursuit of the innovative development of products, while ensuring added value through safe consumer-friendly packaging and labelling - and upholding our reputation as the nation’s best-loved dairy provider in the years to come."

LMF Group eyes to double milk production with completion of Rs.3bn dairy farm
11 September 2020 09:48 am - 0 - 11

A A A
New dairy farm to come into operation first quarter, next year
To double yoghurt production to 8mn cups with Rs.300 mn new plant in Ambewela
By Nishel Fernando
Harry Jayawardena-controlled Lanka Milk Foods (CWE) PLC (LMF) is planning to increase milk production from next year onwards with the completion of the construction of its Rs.3 billion dairy farm by end of first quarter next year, which can accommodate 2000 milch cows while doubling its yogurt production capacity.


The new dairy farm is set to come into operation under United Dairies Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. (UDL), a subsidiary established in 2018 with the focus of increasing the dairy production in LMF dairy farms with ultra-modern facilities for cattle and dairy production.


“The new project to double the milk production is envisaged to be completed by end of 1Q 2021. The new project will be consisting of 4 large cow sheds (which can accommodate 500 cows each), 2 most modern milking parlours and an environment-friendly world class slurry management system,” LMF Group Executive Director, C. R. Jansz told the company’s shareholders in its latest annual report.



Harry Jayawardena




Jayawardena, who is the Executive Chairman of LMF Group, highlighted the arrangements underway to equip the new farm with the best breeds of animals to produce high quality milk with an aim to achieve national self-sufficiency in milk production.


LMF Group has provided two corporate guarantees to UDL to borrow Rs.3.9 billion from Commercial Bank and Hatton National Bank. For 2020, LMF Group approved and contracted capital commitments worth Rs 2.93 billion.
During the financial year 2019/2020, the LMF group was able to increase its total milk production to 8.3 million litres compared to 7.3 litres the previous year through its three dairy farms in Ambewela and Pattipola. However, national milk production recorded a decline in 2019.


“While the total national milk production recorded a decline in 2019, primarily due to the domestic outbreak of foot and mouth disease that occurred during the second half of the year, I take great pride in reporting that our farms recorded an increase of 13.2 percent in milk production.

By adhering to strict protocols and restricting visitors to our farms, we successfully avoided contamination in our farms,” Jayawardena said.


Currently, only 40 percent of the country’s demand is met by fresh milk, with the remaining demand addressed by powdered milk imports at a cost of US$ 293.5 million per annum. “The continued transition from powdered milk to liquid milk is a favourable development in this regard, and Lanka Milk Foods is uniquely positioned to capture this emerging market,” he added.


However, MLF Group stressed it’s crucial to address the remaining bottlenecks in the domestic production processes while encouraging small scale milk processing in order for the country to become self-sufficient in milk production.


MLF Group claims highest milk yield per cow in Sri Lanka capitalising on both high quality European breed cattle and expertise.


“Our three dairy farms are made up of Ambewela Dairy Farm, Pattipola Dairy Farm and Ambewela Product Dairy Farm, and are collectively home to more than 3, 000 cattle. The European breeds of black and white Friesians and brown and white Ayrshires at these farms generate an average of 26 litres of milk per cow per day, which is by far the highest average milk production per cow in Sri Lanka,” Jayawardena said.


Meanwhile, he announced that MLF Group would soon double its current yoghurt production capacity to 8 million cups of yoghurt with its Rs.300 million new yoghurt plant at Ambewela nearing completion.


LMF Group is well known for its flagship milk powder brand Lakspray as well as fresh milk and dairy product sold under Ambewela and Daily brands.


It also exports Ambewela fresh milk, Daily flavoured milk and fruit juices manufactured at Lanka Dairies (Pvt) Limited to Maldives.
