Trust is the primary aspect of importance for a consumer products company. Especially, when it comes to something as important as daily consumables, a manufacturer needs to stay steer clear about the quality delivered. And, a company can only be transparent about it all when it has built its facilities from scratch. Life Lines Feeds, based in Karnataka, India came into being in the year of 1985 with animal feed distribution dealership and later added table eggs and day old chicks to their list of products. Then the company entered the domain of animal feed manufacturing with the brand name “Nandan” which was followed by a poultry breeder farm in 1998. Eventually, the company moved to chicken slaughtering and chilled chicken retail outlets with the name of Life Lines Tender Chicken which has become a popular retail chicken outlet in Bangalore, Karnataka and even other parts of the state. Finally, Life Line Feeds (India) started exporting meat in 2018.
“We believe in integrity and discipline with effective management controls to manufacture quality products consistently and achieve customer satisfaction. We are committed to continuously improving our product quality through effective implementation of quality management systems that aptly complies with the statutory and regulatory requirements”, states K.Kishore Kumar Hegde, Chairman and Managing Director, Life Line Feeds (India) Pvt. Ltd.
