Members

Membership means a lot at the CPS. It means the beginning of a lifelong connection to the heart and soul of the Society.  And it means supporting all the things members love about the CPS—Training, Seminars, Legal Guidance and more. 



History

Sri Lanka Plantations (known for generations as Ceylon Plantations) carries behind it a heritage and success story like no other. The story of Ceylon Plantations begins over two hundred years ago when the country was still a British colony.

THE STATUS TODAY

After 79 years, the Ceylon Planters’ Society has come a long way. Technology has developed beyond imagination and gives easy access to every member to discuss their problems with the Society. One could also say that the initial necessity for such a Society has been realized but, bearing in mind the exigencies of the planting profession in its current context, we do have some grey areas that need to be addressed.

Up to about 65 years of its existence, the Society, through negotiation and co-existence, were able to help its members, especially during the nationalization of estates and eventual privatization, it stood by its principles and was a staunch supporter of its members and was able to bring about a semblance of honor to the Planter. If its perspectives are watched one could see that it is meandering towards its original focus again with the new millennium necessities and trying its best to protect the Plantation Industry for the future generations.
