Our Sri Lankan Heritage

In the 1970s we began selling bulk dairy ingredients in the country. Anchor branded milk powder quickly became a hit, and was followed by the opening of local processing sites.

In the mid-1990s, we launched Anchor Newdale – a fresh dairy range including milk, flavoured milk, yoghurt and curd that uses milk sourced from Sri Lankan farmers. Anchor Newdale dairy products are now a leading choice for Sri Lankan families.

Today we offer a wide range of dairy solutions, from a variety of milk powders to fresh dairy products, allowing us to cater to a broad spectrum of Sri Lankans – from mothers and children, to chefs and restaurants.

Our Locations

We manufacture our products in Biyagama, at our state-of-the-art powder and liquid plants.   

Our powder plant packs over 475,000 packs of milk powder every day, including some of Sri Lanka’s favourite dairy brands Anchor, Ratthi, Anlene and Anchor Pedia Pro.

Our liquid plant processes about 40,000 litres of local milk every day, turning it into fresh dairy products for the Anchor and Anchor Newdale brands, including UHT milk, flavoured milk, set yoghurt, stirred yoghurt and curd.
