High-quality spices, extracts and essential oils:

Welcome to Sri Lanka!

ASIA’S ORGANIC PIONEER

The verdant island in the Indian Ocean is a reliable supplier for a whole list of high-quality natural ingredients. Of special significance here is the coconut, from which coconut oil and coconut blossom sugar are produced – ingredients that enjoy particular favour with European importers.

But Sri Lanka can do more than just coconut: Essential oils and extracts, products stemming from Sri Lanka’s rich and opulent fauna, are excellently suited for manufacturing cosmetics and wellness products.

The role of Sri Lanka as a pioneer in organic cultivation is particularly noteworthy. For many years now, the country’s spice industry has complied with international quality standards such as HACCP, ISO standards, GMP and Organic. Furthermore, Sri Lanka’s National Export Strategy (NES) is a major factor in the country’s pursuit of a new concept to strengthen export trade, which places special emphasis on promoting ecological agricultural production for exports.

IPD is represented with a regional office in Sri Lanka, so that our staff are enabled to pursue intensive on-the-spot screening of trading partners in Asian countries. This means: We find suitable suppliers for you and prepare them thoroughly for the European market.

YOUR BENEFITS 

  • IPD regional office (IPD HUB) facilitates quick, qualified contact
  • Thoroughly vetted suppliers of natural ingredients
  • Free mediation to your new trade partners
