Our Recognition

Setting Ultimately benchmarks in the industry


At Ceciliyan, we do believe that expertise would lead to excellence if only we walk the talk. As buyers had ever so often bid all-time record prices at the Colombo tea auctions for our teas, then surely, we may have got most things, if not all aspects right in the growing and production process!
Team- work and good communication has resulted in every individual knowing his or her goals, harmonized with that of the organization. We believe that whatever we achieve and the way in which we achieve it, would ultimately set benchmarks for the industry.
