Welcome to COCO-PEAT

Coco-peat Company has over the years built a strong understanding of this industry and has now identified a excellent product which is expected to reduce the dependence of artificial and environmentally damaging substances being used by the Floriculture and Agriculture industry worldwide.
Coco-Peat a natural and environment friendly product is an excellent substitute to using chemicals & other environment damaging products. Coco-peat has started gaining its prominence amongst the users in the Floriculture & Agriculture Industry. To capture this nascent market Coco-peat Company has participated in many exhibitions worldwide and received an excellent response to its Coco-peat and coir products.
To ensure consistent quality and timely supplies, Coco-peat Company has set up a manufacturing base in Sri Lanka, Circle 5 Eco Plantations Lanka (private) Limited, which primarily manufactures Coco based products such as Coco-peat and Coir fibre.
The process in the manufacturing and distribution of Coco- peat is plantation for growing of coconuts which is the base product, the extraction of the coco fibre which can be done either at base (plantation) or at the coco-peat factory. The earlier being the better option as then the coconuts themselves needn’t be transported adding to transport costs. The coco fibre so obtained from the coconut harvest is then processed at the manufacturing unit to produce coco-peat, either loose or compressed bricks. The next part of the process is to transport it to the user market and at that place converting the Coco-peat to substrate using an indigenous process.
Coconut being the base product from which coco-peat is manufactured; Coco-peat is a low value and high volume business and hence does not require very high investment in raw material and stock. The major investment area, dependent on the area of focus in the supply chain, is the actual investment in the plantations. Coco-peat Company has put in place the intermediate and final part of the process, namely the manufacture of Coco-peat and marketing & distribution of the products – Coco-peat, Coir products & substrate.
