    History of cinnamon

    Cinnamon has been used by humans for thousands of years, probably as early as 2,000 B.C. This spice became extremely popular in the middle east and European regions through the centuries. Around 1518 AD, Portuguese traders discovered Cinnamon in Ceylon-modern day Sri Lanka, which was nurtured and expanded as a trade by the Dutch and then the British empires. Even after gaining independence from the British rule, the Cinnamon trade has been on a continuous growth due to the demand and uniqueness of flavour.

    There are two types of Cinnamon - Cassia Cinnamon that is produced in Indonesia with an extremely strong smell and flavour and our very own Ceylon Cinnamon which has a milder and sweeter flavour which is loved by the world. It is more expensive out of the two varieties and the flavour is far more superior. Known to add a rich flavour and aroma to any type of dish, Ceylon Cinnamon is today one of the most sought after spices in the world.
