Established in 1979, Maxies and Company (Private) Limited is one of the market leaders in sourcing and producing chicken meat and eggs in Sri Lanka. With a commitment towards excellence and the drive to produce high-quality chicken meat, our humble aim, in the beginning, was to offer nutritious, safe, and internationally certified products to the market. Over the years, this has become our cornerstone, helping us carve out a reputation in the poultry industry, and exceed the expectations of our customers.
With the ever-changing needs of the market, our approach to meat production has drastically changed since its inception, adapting to new techniques, and modern technology. Presently, we are equipped with a fully automated state-of-the-art poultry processing plant paired with the latest installations of de-feathering, evisceration, screw chilling and grading.
We have implemented effective management systems such as ISO 9001:2008, ISO 22000:2005, and ISO 14001:2004 in every step of our production systems to obtain our prime objectives. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), Good Hygiene Practices (GHPs), Good Veterinary Practices (MVPs), and strict biosecurity measures have been adapted from live bird growing at the farms, production processing to dispatch at our farm shop chain.
In everything we do, safety and hygiene have always been our main concern, and in this manner, each member of our staff follows stringent guidelines to ensure that our business stands by its corporate values. Along with this, each of our machines is subjected to regular preventive maintenance programs, while ensuring the utmost levels of quality assurance. By providing excellent products, first-class service, and maintaining close working relationships, we have been able to remain a top supplier for the highly competitive food market.
We have established a well-managed farming system where all the necessary raw material (day-old chicks, medicaments, feeds, etc.) supply is done through approved suppliers. Live bird growing is carried out in environmentally controlled closed houses in which highly skilled employees are engaged. The production cycle is improved to achieve market demand accordingly. The Maxies golden yolk egg is produced with natural pigments, selenium, antioxidants and anti-aging supplements to enhance the immunity of human health.
As a sustainability tool both solid waste and wastewater are treated in an environmentally friendly manner. Energy-saving precautions, wastewater treatment plants, biogas systems, and generated solid waste directed for recycling are some of the approaches we have taken to achieve sustainability.
With our customers’ needs at the focal point of our business at all times, we recently developed a concept of open dialogue, through which we hope to discuss the industry’s challenges – most of which spring from diverse cultural sentiments in Sri Lanka. With this in mind, we initiated a monthly newspaper called “Maxies – Wedabima” aimed at addressing these issues and creating an open communication culture on a large scale.
