We are pleased to leverage further on this valuable relationship by venturing into retail sale of fuel in partnership with Lanka IOC, and plan to open a series of fuel stations at our Cargills Retail outlets across the country in 2023 – to become more than a supermarket chain as we are focused on adding convenience to customers.”
