Their ultimate objective is to supply different varieties of wheat to the Sri Lankan market, he said. Flour will be available in the market from the first week of June.

Untouched by human hands, Seven Stars is produced from the most appropriate wheat sources from the golden wheat fields around the globe with the expertise of the experienced and qualified staff. Due to its strategic location in the Port of Colombo, the mill is in an enviable position to offer the freshest wheat flour to the Sri Lankan consumers and industry with an excellent customer service, he said.

Chairman Serendib Flour Mills (Pvt) Limited, Mahendra Amarasuriya said they enjoy the expertise of the best technical sales and services team in the country, together with a hand-picked team of sales and customer service personnel, all geared to serving and forging trust-based partnership with customers, he said.
