The rubber plantation industry in Sri Lanka has been established over 150 years.

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 groups (Mahaoya, Pitiakande, Sapumalkande and Udabage) consisting of 13 estates.
