The Export Development Board will launch Sri Lanka’s country-of-origin trademark for the spices sector today (25) at Hilton Residences Colombo. 

The mark supports growers, processors and manufacturers by helping them clearly identify their products as Sri Lankan-made, and informs customers and consumers that all significant parts, produce, processing and products are of genuine Sri Lankan origin. 

The spices and concentrates sector has been identified as a priority sector under the National Export Strategy (NES) for export promotion. ‘Become globally recognised as an innovative player in the value added spice market segment’ is one of the strategic objectives. Therefore branding of spices is identified as a priority action in the NES to achieve a set export target of $ 880 million from the spices and concentrate sector by 2022.  Michel Nugawela Designs developed the brand architecture strategy to express the relationship between Ceylon Cinnamon, Ceylon Pepper and other spices within the portfolio as well as the visual identity or face of the brand that represents the larger ideas captured in the brand definition model.
