Established in 1993, we are a devoted organic and fairtrade company based in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Bio Foods (Pvt.) Ltd is registered under the Fairtrade Labeling Organization (FLO) and is a member of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement (IFOAM). Our fairtrade standards ensure that all our producers receive a fair price for their products despite the fluctuating markets, and the premiums they receive ensure a better standard of living in their communities. Due to the commitment to his vision and ethical standing, the founder and Chairman of Bio Foods, Dr. Sarath Ranaweera, went on to receive the first ever “World’s Fairest Fairtrader Award” in 2014.
As a processor and exporter of high quality products, Bio foods (Pvt.) Ltd plays a major role in the organic post-harvested food industry in Sri Lanka. While fulfilling the ever-growing needs of the international market, we take all the necessary steps to assure the sustainability of all stakeholders of this essential supply chain: From producer to consumer. We provide a guaranteed minimum price at the farm-gate, transparent documentation for assured traceability and rigorously maintain local and international environmental regulations.
While we were initially established as an exporter of organic and fairtrade teas, Bio Foods expanded to be the worlds’ first Fairtrade registered processor & exporter for spices. We now have a large range of products marketed under our own brands “Jameslea” and “MÁ”, ranging from teas, spices, herbs, fruits and vegetables, coconut products, to whole grains. Our many processing units allow us to export the final products in bulk form or in consumer packing to Europe, North America, Japan, Australia and many other developed countries under many different certifications. The farmer associations founded by Bio Foods have set both local and international standards, with MOPA being awarded “Best Small Organic Farmer Group in Asia” in 2014 by the FLO, and SOFA is recognized as one of the best sustainable models in Sri Lanka.
