Oasis Marketing (Pvt) Ltd was formed 18 years ago, and is a leading national fertilizer company that is specialized in nature conservation.
It has taken an acute interest in maintaining environmental standards. This has shaped their activities in recent years.
Underscoring the need to distribute environmentally-friendly compost and fertilizer to local farmers, Oasis Marketing Managing Director Sumith de Silva has spearheaded a Memorandum of Understanding between the company and the Institute of Fundamental Studies in Hanthane which was signed recently.
The agreement is a landmark in that it marks the first time in which a leading fertilizer company has signaled its willingness to work on the need to make compost distributed to farmers here free of chemical accretion.
The MOU also envisions more job opportunities, realizing the need to emphasize on chemical-free compost and fertilizer. The agreement was signed by Sumith de Silva and Professor S. A. Kulasuriya from the Institute of Fundamental Studies.
