Spices, Essential Oils & Oleoresins
Sri Lanka, the only supplier of true cinnamon to the world, had been a global destination for the finest quality spices since time immemorial. Global superpowers in the 15th Century waged war over trading rights for Ceylon Cinnamon and Pepper, making Ceylon Spices, the flavour that launched a thousand ships. Today, Sri Lanka is a leading exporter of Ceylon Cinnamon, Ceylon Pepper, Ceylon Cloves, Ceylon Nutmeg and Ceylon Cardamom, all branded under the geographical indication of Ceylon Spices due to their unique aroma and flavour shaped by the terroir of the country. In addition, spice manufacturers in Sri Lanka also supply a range of essential oils and oleoresins derived from the spices grown in Sri Lanka.
