The Story of Anuraj Agencies
Tea has a complex positive effect on the body. Daily use of a cup of tea is good for your health.
Anuraj Agencies is founded by Mr. Cecil Cooray as a small export, import and transport organization, focusing on non-traditional produce such as spices, coconut produce, and charcoal.
Anuraj Agencies begins to make inroads into the rubber market, thanks to their experience in exporting spices and coconut products. They adopt a global marketing approach and hire additional experienced staff.
With the liberalization of overall trade by the Sri Lankan government, Anuraj Agencies changes from a proprietorship to a family partnership and begins importing day-to-day consumer goods, mainly food.
The company continues to expand, acquiring their own warehouses for storing rubber, coconut products, and imports.
The management of Anuraj Agencies begins looking to break into the tea export trade. They face challenges, but with determination and hard work, they overcome them.
Late 2000s - Anuraj tea becomes a leading tea exporter in Sri Lanka and the world, thanks to their commitment to excellence and strong partnerships. Chairman Mr. Cecil Cooray travels extensively to build strong personal relationships with buyers.
Anuraj tea is a proud member of many organizations, including the Sri Lanka Rubber Traders Association, the Colombo Tea Traders Association, and the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. Their success is a testament to the power of hard work, determination, and the pursuit of excellence.
