The rubber plantation industry in Sri Lanka has been established over 150 years. Through nationalization program in 1975 these rubber plantations were managed by the Government Cooperative until 1992. Following a World Bank Report these plantations were then re-privatized to 23 plantation companies. Lalan Plantations Ltd has been awarded a long term sub-lease of 42 years ending in 2045 from Bogawantalawa Plantations Ltd. to manage plantation in 4 regions (Mahaoya, Pitiyakande, Sapumalkande and Udabage) consisting of 13 estates. This arrangement has been approved by the Golden Share Holder and Ministry of Plantation Industries.
