Implementing Geographical Indication (GI) System for Ceylon Tea

This study aims to develop and implement a Geographical Indication (GI) system and related control/certification systems for Ceylon Tea to improve economic welfare and to strengthen the prevailing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) aspects for inclusive and sustainable development along the Ceylon Tea value chain. IPS will be involved in the project as the National Project Coordinator.

The tasks include mapping practices and systematic constraints along the Ceylon Tea value chain, to develop a cohesive strategy for registering Ceylon Tea as a Geographical Indication. Additionally, the project will assist in collectively defining GI specifications and related practices, documenting them to facilitate the GI registration process.
