Nelna Agri Development Pvt Limited is the largest mango cultivator in Sri Lanka and is part of the Nelna
group. Nelna started its mango cultivation seven years ago across several locations, totalling 150 acres in Embilipitiya and Ratnapura. The cultivation currently produces around 1 million kilograms of mangoes per annum.
MDF will support Nelna to: introduce off-season flowering techniques to mitigate effects of seasonality; increase processing capacity through equipping its packhouse and installing a ripening chamber; strengthen the institutional framework through hiring a project manager to oversee mango processing, and; expand its marketing and branding. Almost 50% of the existing workforce comprise women and Nelna is aiming to increase this to 75%.
