Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) and Fonterra Brands Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. (FBL) entered into an agreement where SLT will provide FBL with high speed data connectivity, further strengthening the long-standing relationship between the two organisations.

Under the agreement, SLT will be providing FBL with high speed and reliable internet leased line connectivity via fibre optic infrastructure to meet all their data communication requirements. By utilising SLT’s superior technology FBL employees are empowered to carry out  day-to-day business and administrative activities more effectively, enabling them to make their time spent online more efficient.  Commenting on the significance of the partnership, Young said: “It is a privilege for us to do business with an international brand such as Fonterra and they continue to be one of our most valued customers. As such, it is our pleasure to enhance this important business relationship through signing of this agreement which will enable Fonterra to enjoy upgraded data communications between its Head office and factory in Biyagama and other relevant stakeholders.”

Moreover, the new agreement between SLT and FBL will help to enhance the capabilities of FBL and make their operations smoother, resulting from investing in a cost effective data solution that helps create synergy between the organisation and its functions and network of local and overseas suppliers.

Kasireddy said: “We are extremely satisfied with the service excellence that we have experienced from SLT so far and as such we did not hesitate in extending our business relationship further and making them our data communications provider as well. Through the top class communications solutions provided to us by SLT, I believe that we will be better equipped to focus on our aspirations to serve the Sri Lankan community with the highest standards of excellence, quality and reliability that we have been known for.”
