Supply Chain

Laksawi has established a dedicated supply chain consisting of small and medium scale spice growers. All the farmers are certified organic farmers and their lands are rich in bio and crop diversity.

All farmers are grouped under the farmer organization “LESFA” viz., Laksawi Ecological Small Farmers' Association. 90% of the farmers depend on agri based income sources and their living standards are at a marginal level in comparison to the national level. Individual spices farmers have been exploited by the middleman throughout history. Having a farmer's organization empowers them to take decisions on behalf of their agri produce, due to this the bargaining power for their quality produce is with the farmers.

Ecological farming was in Sri lanka from the inception of farming. During the Era of the Kings all agricultural practices were focused on the holistic approach and the farmers believed the sun and moon influenced their crops. They adopted ancient knowledge for soil fertility and pest management. Farmers practiced NAKATH and KHEM (auspicious time) to protect their crops from wild animals like wild boar and elephants.

Spices farmers in Sri lanka are mainly gathered in the Central highland of the country. This region receives good sunlight and rain fall throughout the year with two main peak seasons. This affects the spice that is produced, which achieves a very specific aroma and flavour when compared to the spices grown in other regions of the country. Spices are grown in a home garden pattern which is known as “ Kandyan Forest Gardens ”. This system is almost similar to the eco system of the natural forest, where it maintains a good balance of the soil nutrient, high crop productivity and sustainability of the system.

The focus of LAKSAWI is not only on quality organic products but also on elevating the living standards of the primary producers. The main reason for that is to protect the farmers from exploitation by the middleman and to guarantee a fixed income for their agricultural produce.

Farmers are the initial link of our valued supply chain and as the first objective we should protect them in order to guarantee the sustainability of the trade. Our other objective is helping the farmers and their family members to upgrade their living standards. The ultimate goal is to provide a better future for the next generation.
 
Socio economic development can be measured by using so many indices developed by the economic specialists. But visual impact of the development at the primary producers’ level can be seen and realized only by having a direct link with the producer members and in seeing their happy faces.

 

We welcome all interested initiatives to join hands with the disadvantaged primary producers and help them to help themselves, by providing more opportunities to sell their produce.

 

Farmer members are dedicated to create a better world for their children even through alot of hardships. It is our social responsibility to bridge the gap to make the effort easy by creating opportunities to them to reach their goals. The earning capacity of the farmers is hardly adequate to meet their daily subsistence of  investing on their land development & children education etc.
