Colombo Page reported that the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka signed an Agreement with ARD Aluminium (Pvt) Ltd to set up a factory at Mirigama Economic Processing Zone to manufacture aluminium food containers with lids and aluminium foil wrap for food. The Investors Akul Gupta, Dhiraj Agarwal and Rohit Agarwal were present at the signing. Also present were Nishantha Gunawardana and Rohan Fernando both Directors of the local manufacturing operator. The BOI was represented by Renuka Weerakoon Executive Director (Monitoring) Acting for the Director General.

Gupta said”They have the capacity to manufacture 250 tons of aluminium containers per month which is the equivalent of 25 forty foot containers. "Our products will be exported to India, the United Arab Emirates and Western Europe, notably the United Kingdom. Our plant will employ 125 workers who will be working in 3 shifts. Also I wish to add that our manufacturing process is environmentally friendly and the left over aluminium will be re-exported to India in bale form. This manufacture will support a lot of local food industries and catering businesses as it is ideal for the delivery of hot food which is a growing business in Sri Lanka," Gupta said.

Production by ARD Aluminium (Pvt) Ltd is expected to start in July 2019.
