We run multiple operations in Sri Lanka our primary base for the various industries we operate in: tin can manufacturing, fish processing and exporting and construction and warehouse rentals.


Our head office and manufacturing plant is located at 87, New Nuge Road, Kelaniya. We run Coldchain and Warehousing operations at 5th Mile Post, Madagama, Dimbulagala, Pollanaruwa and warehousing in 89, Muthuwella, Kerawalapititya, Wattala. 


TESS AGRO PLC’s Processing Facilities are operated in strict compliance to EU and USA food safety regulations. In 2012 the company set up a Branch in Belgium to develop its presence in the EU market.

Tess's Belgium business unit imports fish from the Company and other countries and supplies it to the end user (restaurants, supermarkets, hotels), eventually eliminating the need for an intermediate dealer. This has augured well for Tess in the long run by easing
margin pressures. 

Tess Belgium enjoys the privilege of importing fish from other fish-exporting countries (such as Maldives, Indonesia, and Philippines) and distributing it in the EU (Tess Belgium can operate as an intermediate dealer in the EU).



We operate a leading fish processing hub with a prestigious EU License, specializing in delivering seafood products that meet the highest international quality standards. Established with a commitment to sustainability, quality, and innovation, we strive to redefine the seafood processing industry. Our adherence to EU standards is at the core of our operations and we maintain strict quality control measures to ensure that our products consistently meet or exceed the regulatory requirements set by the European Union.
