Union Commodities (PVT) Ltd.
Union Commodities (PVT) LTD (UNICOM) was set out with a singular vision of exporting premium quality agricultural produce from Sri Lanka. Propelled by the unwavering commitment of the three founders, Unicom has accelerated its growth from a small scale exporter to becoming one of the largest agricultural produce exporters in Sri Lanka.
Established in 1985
Once a larger scale desiccated coconut exporter, Unicom’s focus had shifted from desiccated coconut export to tea in early 1990’s and at present 5 million cups of fine indigenous tea shipped by Unicom is consumed around the globe every day.
Acquired by one of the largest and most diversified conglomerates in Sri Lanka, the “The Colombo Fort Land & Building PLC” in year 2012, a decision was taken to diversify the business by re-entering the coconut business in year 2016.
