Cultivation of Organic Vanilla Beans from Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is one of the few countries in the world where organic vanilla beans are grown. Our vanilla beans are grown by smallholder farmers who cultivate the crop using traditional methods and without the use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. The fertile hills of Sri Lanka provide an ideal environment for the growth of organic vanilla beans, with ample sunshine, rainfall, and rich soil.

 

Sri Lanka Organic Vanilla Beans vs Madagascar Vanilla Beans

Madagascar is the largest producer of vanilla beans in the world, but Sri Lanka’s organic vanilla beans are unique in many ways. Unlike Madagascar vanilla beans, which are known for their bold, sweet, and creamy flavor, Sri Lanka organic vanilla beans have a milder, yet more complex flavor profile. Sri Lanka organic vanilla beans have a delicate sweetness with subtle floral notes, complemented by hints of cherry and caramel. The aroma is also distinct, with a warm and inviting fragrance that is both soothing and uplifting.

Impact

Community

The traditional supply chain of Vanilla from Sri Lanka is characterized by small holder cultivations, decentralized purchasing, low quality product purchases and sales and the presence of a number of intermediaries who extract a share of the benefits that should accrue to the producers. By going direct to the farmer and collecting the spices, we are able to offer a better price that they would not otherwise get (most direct sales happen to a wholesale buyer in a nearby town).

These communities are also unaware of the level of sophistication demanded by the exporter market. We educate them on these requirements and train these farmers to offer a premium product that meets the stringent quality considerations of exports. Finally the process of picking cardamom can be dangerous. We believe that paying a price that would help these farmers upgrade their quality of life is the right thing to do, especially considering the dangers and challenges involved.

 

 

Environment

While there are no specific or measurable impacts the organic farming methods leads to more bio diversity, reduced use of chemicals and soil conservation.

 

 

Source Areas

Sri Lanka is not a major producer of vanilla beans compared to other countries such as Madagascar, Indonesia, and Uganda. However, vanilla beans are grown in Sri Lanka, mainly in the central and southern regions of the country.

The primary areas of vanilla cultivation in Sri Lanka are the Kandy and Matale districts in the Central Province, as well as the Galle and Matara districts in the Southern Province. The climatic conditions and soil in these regions are suitable for growing vanilla, and small-scale farmers typically cultivate it as a secondary crop alongside other crops such as tea and spices.
