According to him, Kurunegala Plantations supplied coconuts to the CWE (Sathosa) at Rs. 65 per coconut during Christmas when the prices were high.
Although they expected supply to the CWE again, the CWE has not made a request as coconut prices in the general market had gone down with the supply.
Piyasoma also says that in 2017, Kurunegala Plantations recorded their highest ever profit in the plantation history. Out of this Rs. 240 million profit, Rs. 28 million will be given to their employees as a monetary incentive.
All of their employees will be given a bonus, which will be twice the amount of their wage, he adds.
Rs. 30m to the coffers
The chairman also said they intend to add Rs. 30 million to the Treasury within next month, out of their 2016 profits.
