The company History
Forefathers lived in Sri Lanka had started to grow coconut from late 1870’s, the colonial period. To meet demand, shipments of coconuts were produced and supplied by Ceylon (Sri Lanka).
Late Mr. T.D.S. Gunasekara was the first instigator as well as the founder of Boyagane DC Mills (Pvt) Ltd. He had been going to Kurunegala with the purpose of planting coconut. He commenced the business as a planter of coconut in the area in early 1920’s. In fact he was one of the pioneers in commercial coconut planting in the area. He earned his capital for coconut cultivation by planting papaw and selling the papaw milk. He had grown acres of coconut lands during several decades. Then his two sons and his elder brother got together and started coconut processing in the year 1958. It was a small mill in Alawwa area. They manufactured desiccated coconut and successfully exported them for many years. In 1978, they have expanded the capacity of the mill and shifted it in to the present premises of the mill in Boyagane, Kurunegala, Sri Lanka.
