Since the very first tea plant was planted at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Peradeniya, the Sri Lankan Tea industry has come a long way for almost two centuries. Once it went commercial, Ceylon Tea was soon renowned as the world’s finest tea based on its unique taste, and quality ingredients.
Loved by tea enthusiasts all over the world, Ceylon Tea meets the rising demands of the global tea market in various flavours and varieties. Ceylon Tea is also marked as the cleanest tea in the world since the product does not contain any artificial additives or harmful pesticides.
With an increasing awareness of environmental sustainability and eco-friendly agriculture methods, most farmers, gardeners, and nurseries are investing in eco-friendly horticulture practices.
The Sri Lankan agriculture sector contributes largely to the local economy. With a thriving coconut-based industry, Sri Lankan is a leader in producing coconut fibre and coco peat-based products for local and global markets.
Coconut is the third most important agricultural industry in the Sri Lankan economy, followed by tea and rubber. The Sri Lankan coconut industry has a long story behind its days of success.
The versatility of the coconut has induced the launch of a series of new food and beverage products based on the kernels, water and sap of the coconut and the coconut flower.
