Present government has identified the spice sector as one of the key sectors for achieving better export performance in future due to the high demand in the export market. To achieve the level of exports that the government anticipates by 2020, the sector needs to overcome key challenges that inhibit its performance. The study maps 3 spice value chains in Sri Lanka – cinnamon, pepper and cardamom – to identify opportunities as well as constraints including quality and safety issues affecting the sector towards providing recommendations for policy interventions at different points in the chain. It adopts a value chain analysis as a framework of analysis and uses both qualitative and quantitative data to provide a situational analysis.
