Ceylon Cold Stores buys water bottling plant

5 December, 2021

Ceylon Cold Stores has acquired the water bottling plant at Kotagala from their subcontracted partner Worldwide Enterprises (Pvt) Ltd which was engaged in the production of Elephant House Bottled Water.

Elephant House beverages launched Elephant House Water in June 2018 sourcing water from the purest streams and fountains. Elephant House water bottles are manufactured under the SLS certification, ensuring that the water is filtered and packed in compliance to the exact specifications, maintaining the highest quality and hygiene standards.

Fulfilling the company’s objective of offering hydration in its most pure form, the new facility will be operated exclusively as the “Water bottling Plant of Ceylon Cold Stores” allowing greater expansion possibilities for the company. The launch of the factory under the ownership of Ceylon Cold Stores took place recently and was opened by President Consumer Foods,  Daminda Gamlath.  The Ceylon Cold Stores management team was also present.

“We are delighted that we will enhance our production and delivery with this acquisition. At CCS we have always been concerned with our consumers’ safety and have strived to provide pure water, sourcing them from the purest streams in the hill country.  With this acquisition we will unlock the possibility to offer our consumers a variety of new innovations. We hope to improve our processes through innovation and technological advancements to ensure that we meet the highest quality standards,” said Gamlath.

The acquired plant is within the Kotagala Industrial Estate.
