Message from the Director

Sam GamageDirector, CEO
As the Director of Colombo Coir Exporters, it gives me great pleasure to share our company’s history and achievements with you.

In 2009, we started our journey as a proprietor company with a single goal in mind – to produce and export high-quality coir yarn to Pakistan to cater to the requirements of a single buyer. With hard work, dedication, and a commitment to quality, we have captured the markets and experienced continuous and rapid growth over the years.

2017 marked a significant change for our company as we reregistered as a limited liability company with the same name, Colombo Coir Exporters (Pvt) Ltd., to better serve our valued clients. We possess all the necessary certificates from organizations such as the Coconut Development Authority and the Export Development Board.

As the Director, I am proud to say that our company’s success is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication to providing the highest quality coir products. We are committed to continue providing eco-friendly, sustainable and high-quality products to our customers, and the timely delivery of orders is our promise.

Thank you for considering Colombo Coir Exporters for your coir product needs. We look forward to serving you.

Our Team

In Sri Lanka, approximately one-third of coconut production is utilized for the coconut-based industry and exported as value-added products, while the remaining two-thirds is consumed locally. In 2018, the country earned a significant amount of foreign exchange, with exports of coconut and coconut-based products totaling US$588 Million.

Sri Lanka has a unique advantage in this sector, thanks to its geographical location, skilled labor, and advanced and traditional processing technologies. As of 2017, the country is ranked as the leading exporter of coir and coir-related products and the third-largest exporter of desiccated coconut and coconut oil according to world rankings.
