Latex producers should make long-term arrangements to export their produce on a regular and steady basis, said Ms Sheela Thomas, Chairman, Rubber Board while speaking at a meeting of the latex producers convened by the Board. The meeting observed that the prevailing market situation is favourable for exports especially with the international latex price ruling above domestic prices. Participants also felt that it would be advantageous for Rubber Producers' Societies, which market their produce as latex, to divert to sheet making considering the price differential.The President, Latex Producers' Association, representatives of the Plantation Corporation of Kerala; State Farming Corporation; Rehabilitation Plantations; Harrisons Malayalam Ltd, and Periyar Latex Ltd participated in the meeting.
