Sri Lanka's investment promotion agency, Board of Investment has signed an agreement with Aussee Oat Milling Pvt Ltd, to manufacture oats based products such as rolled/flaked oats, flavored oats, oats muesli, oats flour, oats bars and oats cookies for export.

The company plans to invest US$ 10.5 million to set up a manufacturing plant in the Export Processing Zone in Mirigama.
