Kurunegala Plantations Limited (KPL) strives to be the model plantation and agribusiness management company in the South East Asian Region. In fulfilling this vision, KPL relentlessly continues to manage its plantations and other agribusinesses productively, profitability and sustainably through harnessing its natural, physical and human resources to the optimum.

We believe in building an honest, qualified and committed workforce who are focused on quality, productivity, entrepreneurship, value creation, profitability, eco friendliness and corporate social responsibility. In empowering our staff, we have taken two-fold approach; firstly, we have provided financial benefits to our employees including performance-based incentives and non-financial benefits such as better housing and other facilities.

KPL looks to the future with confidence and optimism considering its ability to withstand adversity. In further enhancing the profitability of the company, KPL continue to explore every possible avenue to add value to its products, including the prospect of creating end products such as organic coconut oils. Besides, KPL strive to venture on eco-tourism projects as another income generation prospect. In the long run, KPL endeavor to continue in the same path focusing on further development of the diversification program through extending it to a wider land area. In doing so, KPL wishes to explore the possibility of public-private
partnership initiatives in surpassing the bottlenecks described above.

In conclusion, I wish to thank all our stakeholders for the trust and confidence placed in our company. I look forward to your continued patronage in the years ahead.
