Sri Lanka seeks to trademark cinnamon spice success

Sri Lanka seeks to trademark cinnamon spice success

Agence France Presse. (Hikkaduwa, September 28.)   Ten years after the Asian tsunami devastated Sarath Kumara's cinnamon plantation in Sri Lanka, forcing him to start over with nothing, the farmer faces a new threat from further afield.   Sri Lanka is the world's leading cinnamon supplier thanks to its centuries-old industry, whose lush, green plantations are strung along the island's southern coast where European colonists and Arab traders once flocked.   But the industry says its product known the world over as "Ceylon cinnamon" is being undermined by a cheaper rival called "cassia cinnamon" grown mostly in China, Southeast Asia and neighbouring India.  ...

Strengthening ties between Estonia and Sri Lanka

Strengthening ties between Estonia and Sri Lanka

Sunday, 28th September 2014 LENS When you ask people in Estonia about Sri Lanka, what would be the first thing they say? Ceylon tea, nice sunshine and sandy beaches, cinnamon, most probably.
