CIC Poultry Farms widens chicken distribution

CIC Poultry Farms widens the CIC Besto chicken distribution island wide. CIC Chicken, the product reputed as one of the highest quality chicken available in Sri Lanka, offers their brand – ‘Besto’ which is available in most of the leading Supermarkets and groceries, at affordable prices.

The advanced technology and international food safety standards have earned customers’ trust for CIC Besto chicken as the safest chicken available in the country. Now ‘Besto’ stands as a unique brand for chicken and poultry products coming in 3 convenient packs as Family pack, Pre-cut skinless, and Pre-cut whole chicken. Besto Pre Cut normal and skinless versions come as whole chicken cut in to 12 pieces. “Today chicken is the cheapest available protein for Sri Lankans and CIC chicken is the least human handled product in the country. Our processing plant is a state- of- the-art automated plant equipped with modern technology. We have automated many areas in chicken processing and use advance technology to retain high quality and safety of chicken meat.” says Ajith Weerasinghe, CEO, CIC Poultry Farms Ltd. What is so special with ‘Besto’ chicken is the fact that everything from chicks/chicken feed to broiler chicken is made within the company. Therefore, the company has high level of traceability for Besto Chicken.

It is worthy to clear the wrong information of the general public that hormones are used in the production of chicken. No producer uses hormones in the production of chicken and it is practically not possible. Therefore there is no reason to be fear of consuming CIC Besto chicken. Further the hormone cost is higher than chicken meat prices. As a result of technological improvements and advancement of science, today broiler chicken grows to 2.2kg in 5 weeks by consuming 3.5kg of quality feed. CIC Feeds (Pvt) Ltd has its own feed production facility, breeding farms and hatcheries to produce Day-Old-Broiler chicks.

The Broiler production is done under environmentally controlled houses where light, temperature and air flow are regulated. In addition to following all international standards pertaining to food safety, the company has obtained ISO 22000 and HACCP certifications. CIC Poultry Farms Ltd is a subsidiary of CIC Feeds (Pvt) Ltd and came into operation as a result of CIC Feeds aiming to become a vertically integrated poultry enterprise.
