Prima Ceylon (Private) Limited (PCL) operates a unique flour milling complex that is completely self-contained. Its facilities at Trincomalee provide for the loading and unloading of wheat grain, flour and by-products directly onto and from the ships docking at the wharf/jetty. The fully-integrated mill is served by a modern transport network with road, rail and sea access. In addition, there are residences, clubhouse, clinic and other amenities within the complex for our employees.
Completed in 1980, the flour milling complex in Trincomalee is the world’s largest flour mill under one roof with a daily milling capacity of 3650MT of wheat. Our third group of silos was ready in August 2015 with total silo space of 350,000MT. The extended and upgraded jetty can now berth up to 100,000MT of Cape-size bulk carriers. The newly completed inner multi-purpose wharf can handle containerised vessels to help increase South Asian trade. A fleet of more than 20 state-of-the-art prime movers is deployed for islandwide distribution.
