The colourful event included captivating dance performances and symbolized a significant step towards community enrichment and nourishment marking a key milestone in the region of Kandy.

With the introduction in Kandy, estates in surrounding areas such as Gampola, Matale, Nawalapitiya, and Pussellawa regions will have the opportunity of obtaining Serendib Adi Shakthi Fortified wheat flour, empowering communities with access to a vital source of nutrition and wellness. The initiativeis a testament to Serendib Flour Mills’ dedication to nourishing communities and fostering moments of celebration, demonstrating the company’s commitment to addressing health challenges and promoting wellbeing within the Sri Lankan Estate community.
