A diversified group – DDA is a Kegalle-based group of companies with a presence in multiple business verticals including retail, foodservice, agriculture and entertainment.
Retail: The large, multi-storied retail center strategically located on the main Colombo-Kandy Road boasts a large product range of over 1 million SKUs—product categories include grocery, household essentials, furniture & home décor, educational items, toys, apparel, and hardware.
