Mango is Nature’s gift to mankind. A fruit that heals, protects and refreshes, it is also infinite in variety, changing subtlety with the natural alchemy of sunshine, soils, wind, rain and temperature. That beautiful variety in mango is as much a challenge as a deliciously indulgent reward for whilst nature gives us a mango to suit every mood, and desire, she demands expertise in understanding and selecting the finest. That expertise can only come from passionate commitment to mango.
Founder of Nelna, Mr. W G E G Nanayakkara, declared his commitment to mango in 2005 as a business diversification strategy from his core business of integrated poultry business, which is well established in Sri Lanka.
Today, nearly ten years on, Nelna Agri Development (Pvt) Ltd is the largest mango plantation in Sri Lanka, spreads over 650 acres of land in the intermediary and dry zones in Sri Lanka.
