Our pioneer venture into modern trade in 1983 was a unique innovation of our company’s longstanding trading legacy.
We continued to challenge the norm by revolutionizing what was traditionally an affluent affair by offering products
of a higher value for the lowest prices. Today, the retail operation has evolved significantly and operates throughout
every corner of the island through ‘Cargills Food City’ supermarkets and ‘Cargills Food City Express’ convenience stores.
Now we are Sri Lanka’s largest and most complete modern retailer. While some supermarket chains focus solely on providing value and others focus on the very best product, we have always strived and worked tirelessly to bring both under one roof.
We were rated the 10th Most Valuable Brand in Sri Lanka according to the Brand Finance Index ratings of 2016 with an AA+ rating which is a testament to the fact that we have continued to strengthen our legacy year after year. We are also the only retailer to be ranked among the Top Ten National Brands in the country. Our retail footprint has reached 400 stores covering all 25 districts of Sri Lanka, making quality products for affordable prices accessible to all, on their way home.
We believe in making your shopping experience an unforgettable one, that is why we make a continuous effort in revamping and changing with the times to create a more convenient and interesting shopping experience for our loyal patrons. Some of the changes include:
New layout at several locations across the country, in response to demanding and emerging trends, to facilitate greater convenience to our valued customers.
Eight stores encapsulating the new experience, located conveniently in Pagoda, Kandana, Enderamulla, Gampaha, Matara, Wadduwa, Anuradhapura, Piliyandala and Kurunegala. This upgrade will improve the factors which make our supermarkets more appealing. With a new look and feel, ample parking space and an extended range of products. In addition to the new aesthetics, our stores will also be reset to make it easier to navigate the perimeter and aisles which will include new signs, flooring and decor that will complement the updated interior. The outlet at Kandana also includes a bakery and cafe to offer customers a gourmet experience in-store.
New and improved layout also depicts our commitment to the people of Sri Lanka, signifying a promise to our shoppers while representing our dedication towards innovation and evolution in today’s dynamic retail food environment.
Immaculate attention to detail on customer expectations with regards to their shopping experience. The new renovated outlets feature over 10,000 products, a pharmacy, farm fresh vegetables and a variety of meats and fish and much, much more, truly making us your one-stop shop, for all your needs.
