Bring your products to Europe

YOUR SALES OPPORTUNITY

Natural ingredients are highly demanded in Europe - not only for the food industry, but also in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors. Sri Lanka has lots to offer in this respect, especially in the important organic farming segment.

European companies attach great importance to international quality standards like HACCP, ISO-standards and GMP. Natural flavors and healthy ingredients are particularly popular in Europe, such as:

  • Coconut products such as virgin coconut oil, coconut blossom sugar, coconut butter or drinking coconut
  • Spices, such as cinnamon, pepper, cardamom, vanilla, nutmeg and many more.
  • Essential oils and extracts of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger or cloves, etc.

If you grow these or other natural ingredients in Sri Lanka and want to export them to Europe, IPD can support you. Thanks to our IPD regional office in Colombo, our support is quick and uncomplicated. 

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Direct contact to suitable importers in Europe
  • IPD regional office for fast and qualified support
  • Participation in European trade fairs, virtual b2b events, selling missions etc.
