Lalan since 1940

The Lalan Group is one of Sri Lanka's largest diversified conglomerates, with an extensive global network encompassing pan-industry interests in rubber, tea and other plantation crops (such as cardamom, cinnamon, coffee and stevia); re-forestry; renewable energy; manufacturing; service industries; engineering and the leisure sector.

Established three generations ago in Sri Lanka, the Group, which started primarily as a rubber commodity trading operation, has expanded, developed and modernized its operational modalities in keeping with global changes. However, the Group remains rooted in the family company's traditional, socially and environmentally conscious values.

Where We Are Located

Sri Lanka, an island in the Indian Ocean is located to the South of the Indian subcontinent. It lies between 5 55’ and 9 55’ North of the equator and between the Eastern longitudes 79 42’ and 81 52. The total land area is 65,610 sq km and is astonishingly varied. A length of 445 km and breadth of 225 km encompasses beautiful tropical beaches, verdant vegetation, ancient monuments and a thousand delights to please all tastes. The relief features of the island consist of a mountainous mass somewhat south of the centre, with height exceeding 2,500 meters, surrounded by broad plains. Palm fringed beaches surround the island and the sea temperature rarely fall below 27 C.

Sri Lanka lies 10 degrees North of the Equator and South East of India, separated from it by the Gulf of Mannar, Palk’s Bay and Palk Strait, which at its narrowest point, Rameswaram in India and the Jaffna Peninsula, is less than 80 km wide. The sea crossing between Rameswaram in India, and Mannar Island, off the North-West coast of Sri Lanka, is only around 32km. There is evidence of a natural land bridge connecting Sri Lanka with India at this point, and indeed this vanished causeway, only a few meters below sea level, is still known as Adam’s Bridge. This close proximity to the subcontinent has meant that Sri Lanka’s history and ecology have always been exposed to strong influences from its larger neighbour.
