We carry the same essence of unity and integrity within our family business to our external business relationships. This has paved the way for decade-long partnerships with reputed companies. Our half a millennium relationship with the brand Colmans, for example was cemented with the global brand being acquired by our sister company Colman’s Lanka pvt ltd in the year 2019.
Our business relationship with Reckitt & Benckiser dates back 4 decades, when Late Mrs. Constance de Fonseka, who was a trailblazer, ventured into supply contracts with a number of reputed multinational companies, including M/s Reckitt & Colman’s Pvt Ltd in 1971 (known today as Reckitt & Benckiser). The brand “Colman’s” has been holding the largest market share for Coconut Vinegar since they partnered with us. The company also achieved the sole contract of manufacturing Dettol and Colman’s instant drink for the same business partner.
We also extend our expertise in food product manufacturing to a range of other reputed brands such as Harischandra, Delmege, MD, Ruhunu Foods, Ruhunu Royal, Kist and all major Supermarket brands on the island… and the list only keeps growing. We have slowly built our international network of partners who earnestly and consistently purchase their organic products from us at CDDEF. Our products are available through our partner networks for customers throughout all the continents.
Contract manufacturing is a way of life at C D De Fonseka & Sons (Pvt) Ltd group of companies for over a hundred years. We have developed extensive B2B relationships with a host of global and local partners, who continue to trust in our ability to deliver the best.
