Sarada de Silva – President of the National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka (NCE) has been invited to attend the World Spice Conference – 2016 and invited to make a presentation on Spice Industry – Sri Lanka Perspective.

Sarada de Silva is the Founder Chairman of the Spice Council and has contributed substantially to the Development of the Sri Lanka Spice Industry.

Since its inception in 1990, the World Spice Congress (WSC) has evolved to become the global platform for discussion and interaction between producers, importers, exporters, regulators, and other stakeholders in the Spice Industry.

The WSC which is organized by the SPICES BOARD of India with support from various Trade Organizations is now a much sought after and a well-attended event.  Since the World is experiencing rapid changes in food safety issues, health authorities globally have embarked on a mission to make food safer for their people.

WSC 2016 will deliberate extensively on this, as well as other issues and bring the delegates upto date on plans to make the food chain safe, reliable, consistent, and most importantly sustainable.

Several professional speakers from India and other countries will address the WSC on important topics related to the spice sector.  These include the following:

The Spice industry in Sri Lanka which has tremendous potential for development and increase of exports of a range of spices, especially Cinnamon, has received the focused attention of the government in respect of exports for the economic development of Sri Lanka.

“In this context invitations received by de Silva to participate at several international events related to the Spice Industry including the WSC will not only enable to attract International attention on the Spice Industry of Sri Lanka for its future development and growth, but will also enable him to gather knowledge on current world developments related to the Industry, for the benefit of stakeholders in Sri Lanka,” the National Chamber said.
