About Us...

Sena Mills Refineries (Pvt) Ltd is a premier Sri Lankan edible oil refinery with both local and international operations. For over four decades we have been a major player in the edible oils and fats industry of Sri Lanka. Sena Mills entered the Sri Lankan edible oil industry in the late 1960’s as coconut oil mill under the leadership of Mr. Baduge Karunasena. The company achieved a steady growth over the decades from the point of inception. By the 1980’s Sena Mills was one of the largest coconut oil mills operating in the country and became a reputed producer and exporter of coconut oil and related products. The company reached a key milestone in 1999 with the establishment of Sena Mills Refineries (Pvt) Ltd, under the new leadership of Mr. Thishan Karunasena. Sena Mills Refineries (Pvt) Ltd is the first continuous edible oil refinery established in Sri Lanka. Starting with the refining of coconut oil, the company gradually expanded to conduct processes such as refining, fractionation, esterification and inter-esterification of palm oil and manufacturing of oil and fat based constituents of bakery products and soap blends, focusing mainly on wholesale operations. Concurrently the company commenced the export of edible oils, fats and related products, capturing new international export markets over time. Within Sri Lanka we have been able to maintain the market leadership in several key market segments, while upholding the trust and partiality of longstanding suppliers and customers through decades. The main underlining contributors to the company’s success over the years were the charismatic leadership of the Karunasena family and the dedication and professionalism of the extended family, which is our highly experienced local and foreign staff. Giving precedence to these strengths, the company has been able to expand further into include plantations and end customer brand building. Foreign and local expansion into reaching more market segments and further diversification of edible oil related end products are considered to be the key future objectives of Sena Mills Refineries (Pvt) Ltd. In addition, the company pays high attention towards acquiring modern manufacturing technologies and information driven performance improvement technologies which hold a strategic importance. Elevating the existing workforce to the world class level through development is another key concern of the management.
