About this company:

Rainforest Foods (Pvt) Ltd. is a small and innovative Sri Lankan owned company based in Galle town in the south of Sri Lanka. The organization was set up in 2011, when the directors identified an opportunity to link small scale farmers residing close to threatened forests and local certified groups with the market place at local and global level. The directors believe that an organization that is socially orientated and one that works using fair codes of ethics can help bring about lasting positive change in the rural sector of Sri Lanka and strengthen the threatened ecosystems of the tropical wet rainforests. Rainforest Food products are sourced from farmers and suppliers that are certified or those that farm in close proximity to the remaining Rainforests of Sri Lanka. Rainforest Foods promotes the use of organic production on these farms and helps the farmers reach more diversified incomes, by improving the local agricultural systems. Working closely with Rainforest Rescue International; an organization that works with rural forest edge communities throughout the country, production systems that use no pesticides or fertilizers are promoted and introduced to rural farms. While the Rainforest Foods has been active in pursuing international trade with current exports of products to Germany, Russia and America the importance of supplying the local market with high quality and socially friendly products has been a strong focus over the past years. Supporters and consumers of the Rainforest Foods product brand are environmentally sensitive individuals that want the best quality product that is produced in a sustainable manner.

Corporate Social Responsibility:
Rainforest communities have been intricately linked to the forest ecosystem and have now lost essential relationships with the forest. This loss between the rainforest ecosystem and communities is something that is alarming and a challenge to us all on this planet. Rainforest foods is about bringing the best quality, freshest flavors of the rainforest to your kitchen. Grown by farmers and small holders that live and work in communities adjoining the rainforest. We only buy from small producers who engage in forest restoration, protect their water sources and increase biodiversity. We support farmers to achieve organic and fair principles of production and the best of those are certified Forest Garden Producers and delivered to market.
