About Us

From a palm lined island

Our story begins upon the rich soils of Sri Lanka, an island famed for its beaches lined with lean, luscious coconut trees. It is our Sri Lankan heritage that makes us a unique and authentic manufacturer of coconut-based products.

wichy

Grown with love Picked with care

Over three decades ago we joined hands with trusted local coconut farmers who continue to remain the strength and bedrock of the Wichy Plantation Company today. Coming from local communities who have harvested coconuts over many generations, they know best, the tastes, flavours and healing properties of the fruit, and uses of the coconut tree from the tip of the leaf blade right down to its roots.

Through them we source natural and organic fruits of the best quality. Every hand-picked coconut is chosen with care. Each fruit is picked at the perfect point of maturity by our farmers experienced in local coconut harvesting traditions. It is their skill and spirit we hope to carry through our products, placing in your hands the passion and perfection of a trusted Sri Lankan community.

Enriching communities worldwide

Through processing, packaging, and delivering our unique products, we hope to give back to the families who work with us, supporting their livelihoods and enriching their lives.

Over the years, we have developed the art of mixing local flavours and traditional food practices with contemporary ingredients and health requirements, adding a distinct and authentic twist to the products we deliver. What makes WICHY even more relevant and essential to you today, is our emphasis on health and wellness. Our products are 100% organic, natural and rich in nutrients and are available as vegan and gluten-free alternatives.
