About Us

L B Spices Trading (Private) Limited is a leading producer and exporter of fine quality spices - cinnamon, garcinia, nutmeg, coffee, ginger, aricanut, cloves, pepper from Sri Lanka to discerning markets including USA, European Union, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and South America.

Mr. K L Gunadasa founded the company way back in 1930 as a cinnamon buying and selling establishment.  In 1970, he expanded the business to a medium scale operation by growing cinnamon in own plantations in Meetiyagoda, the main town of Ambalangoda in the southern coastal belt of Sri Lanka.

In 1991, Mr. K L Karunaratne joined hands with his father - Mr. K L Gunadasa, to consolidate the business.  In 1997, L B Spices Trading (Private) Limited was established as a limited liability company and since then, the business was expanded to a larger scale spice export company by including value-added products to its existing traditional product range.  Distilling cinnamon leaf oil, cinnamon bark oil and other essential oils strengthened the prestigious image of the company in international markets.

Our common products are produced from authentic plant material.  Plants are cultivated under careful supervision in our own plantations using natural manure without using artificial pesticides.
