The Coconut Development Authority of Sri Lanka, in collaboration with the Department of Commerce and the Sri Lanka Embassy in Brazil, participated at the APAS Show 2019, considered the largest supermarket exhibition held in Latin America.  The APAS Show 2019 was held from 6-9 May at the Expo-Centre, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The Sri Lankan delegation was headed by State Minister of Plantation Industries Vadivel Suresh and four Sri Lankan leading coconut exporting companies, namely: Bio Extracts Ltd., Consolidated Business Systems Ltd., Agri Exports Ltd. and NDC Exports Ltd., and Mihira Perera, promotional officer of the Coconut Development Authority of Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lankan stall at the APAS Show exhibited a range of coconut products such as desiccated coconut, coconut milk powder, virgin coconut oil, coconut flour, and coconut sugar. The participating delegation held a number of successful B2B meetings with the leading supermarket suppliers in Brazil for a variety of coconut product brands such as Copra, Quality Coco, and Coco Land, and received numerous business inquiries from leading supermarket suppliers and individual companies in Brazil during the exhibition. 

It is significant to note that during the past 5 years, the exports of coconut related products from Sri Lanka to Brazil registered over 2% increase and the industry has constantly grown in 2018.
