Harvested and organically dried, Sri Lankan cinnamon sticks produced by the Podie cooperative are environmentally friendly. The sale of this cinnamon also supports workers´ rights, as sales profits are reinvested to advance development of their communities. The Podie organization uses traditional harvesting techniques that date back thousands of years, first cutting the cinnamon directly from the tree bark, then twisting it around itself to form a cinnamon ¨stick¨ and drying it. Once dried, the outcome is cinnamon sticks of delicate texture and highest quality.
