SynopsisKeells Food Products Limited Ekala, is the todays leader of the meat processing industry in Sri Lanka which has 70% of market share. KFPL produces processed meat products as Keells range products and battered and crumbed products as Krest range products. Sausages, meat balls, ham, bacon, bomb products, fresh meat cuts etc. are some Keells range products, and Chinese rolls, drumsticks, nuggets, fish burger, fish finger etc are some of the Krest range products. I had a great opportunity to do my in-plant training in those factories and I gained ample knowledge about processing and quality control practices of processed meat products. The factory has a receiving bay in which all raw meat are received and dry ingredients are bought through dry stores and other ingredients are sent to freezes or chiller. They also receive live pigs and slaughter them in the slaughter house in the factory premises. After slaughtering pigs and other received carcasses are sent to de- boning section for de- bone according to the

production requirement. From that variety of products are made and stored in freezers until sent to Finley cold stores. In krest factory, battered and crumbed meat products are produced and marketed as Krest range products. Further more the factory has its own waste water and water treatment plant and waste disposal system which does not release hazards to the environment Apart from that quality control department of KFPL is doing a great job to assure the safety of customers via maintaining the quality of the food. They perform microbiological, chemical testing according to SLS methods and sensory evaluations to ensure product safety. I got familiarized with all the production procedures are well as quality assurance in KFPL. Apart from that I carried out many case studies and most of those were based on swab sample testing method.


I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my internal supervisor Dr. T.S.P. Jayaweera (Senior lecturer, Department of Livestock Production, Faculty of Agricultural sciences, Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka) for giving his assistance to undertake this study and his valuable guidance in carrying out this training successfully. At the same time , I wish to acknowledge my gratitude to the external supervisor Mr. Anton Kalubowila (Manager Livestock Purchasing, KFPL) for his valuable guidance, constructive criticism and invaluable assistance given for the successful completion of this program. Secondly I would like to thank Dr. Jagath Munasinghe (Coordinator- industrial training program, Department of Livestock Production, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka) , Dr. D.M.A. Gunaratne , Head of the department of Livestock Production and all the academic non academic staff of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka for their guidance and help extended me in numerous ways.
