Operations Manager of SriCert Organic, Ajantha Palihawadana, Director of Pussalla Meat Producers, Dr. Chamindi Wewita and General Manager of Pussalla, Dr. H. P. Premasiri look on.

Pussalla Meat Producers (Pvt) Ltd, after 30 years of growth and achieving total vertical integration, has diversified to organic cinnamon cultivation and processing.

Pussalla’s organic cinnamon has received recognition from the Sri Cert Organic Certification Institute.

The institute awarded organic certification status, following a rigorous evaluation of the entire cultivation and processing centre. The certificate was conferred upon the company at a ceremony at the Pussalla head office recently.

The company started the journey with 30-acre cinnamon cultivation that adheres to stringent organic standards, with plans underway for an ambitious expansion to cover an impressive 60 acres at the first stage.

The careful process control that Pussalla maintains, from cultivation to the shelves of its outlets, ensures that customers receive only the finest organic certified cinnamon sticks, powders, and leaf oil.

Chairman of Pussalla Philip D.J. Wewita said, “Cinnamon has a rich history as one of the oldest commodities traded internationally, dating back to the Dutch era in Sri Lanka. As we stride forward into this new chapter, it is our collective responsibility to restore and elevate the nation’s glory in global cinnamon cultivation and exports while we are having a Geographical Identification for Ceylon cinnamon.”
