UK: Botanicoir celebrates 10 years supporting British growers

Delivering quality coir to Britain’s fruit, vegetable and nursery growers is at the heart of Botanicoir’s business. In a short 10 years, this UK based company has developed a top class reputation for supplying reliable and consistent products that continue to grow in popularity across the industry.

According to managing director Kalum Balasuriya, the UK and worldwide success of the business is down to maintaining strong relationships with growers, as well as sustaining a high standard of product. “The company has largely grown through word of mouth which is always our most reliable form of marketing.

“We try to mark ourselves apart from other coir suppliers, in terms of product quality, expertise and customer support and each year we take growers over to Sri Lanka to see the operation for themselves. Transparency in the way we work is very important to us," he says.

The business celebrated its 10 year anniversary in July, and is still growing. In 2005 the company started out selling bales of coir, one container load was shipped from Sri Lanka. Today they supply 450 containers of coir worldwide, to 46 countries, including Spain, Turkey, Morocco, the US, Norway and Jordan.

“Our growers tell us that we are the preferred coir product in the market, and we strive to defend this position going forward,” adds Kalum.
