EDB Assist Farmer Groups to Obtain Organic Certification to Facilitate Export Market Access

The demand for organic food products is continuously increasing due to the growing interest in markets such as EU, USA, Middle East, Japan, and China. Among the producing countries, Sri Lanka maintains a reputation as a reliable producer and supplier  of organic agricultural products adhering to the internationally required organic standards such as “EU Organic”, “USDA”, “JAS” etc.   Even during COVID-19 pandemic, Sri Lanka has received considerable amount of orders for organic food products such as tea, spices, coconut kernel products, jack fruit products, traditional rice, kithul treacle etc. As a result, increasing the supply base of organic food products to serve the foreign orders on time is necessary to bring more foreign currency to the country.
