Plantations - Aitken Spence


With 13 estates and 17 factories in the low, central and up country regions across Sri Lanka covering a landmass of over 8800 hectares, our subsidiary Elpitiya Plantations produces top grade tea, rubber, coconut, cinnamon and oil palm crops as its core business. Having mastered the mix of land, skilled labor and innovative technologies, we now apply agriculture intelligence across our plantation businesses.

While enhancing the wellbeing of our communities, we continue to explore expansion opportunities through commercial forestry, crop diversification, forward integration, horticulture, renewable power generation and the development of adventure and ecotourism across our estates.
