Our Legacy

In 1955, began the courageous journey of G.P De Silva with a few bales of cinnamon in hand and 20 feet office space that he had bought from the few pennies left. In a very short time, he was able to dominate the domestic market and, along with his eldest son eventually venture into global markets in the late 1970s. A specially selected and carefully packed consignment of Cinnamon from the plantations of southern Sri Lanka left the shores of Sri Lanka to Chile one day. This was the first shipment that marked the success of the global voyage. Today, we are confident to say that we are the largest exporter of Ceylon cinnamon, annually shipping to Mexico, South and Central America, USA, Europe, Australia and Middle East. We are in utmost pride being ranked the world’s largest Cinnamon exporter for the past few decades and continuing…………
