Lanka Spice (Pvt) Ltd was established in 1984 with a handful of employees. From the inception the Company looked to produce spices and spices powders of high quality, procuring them from overseas and local suppliers, who had to meet the stringent norms set by the Company with regard to quality.
The “spice” journey of Lanka Spice was not an easy one, as we had to face severe competition. Over time, our brand “Mc Currie” became a household name our housewives trusted and they continue to patronize our products.
Our plant at Makumbura, which is the “birth place” of our expanded Company, deals with the procuring and packaging of spices and spice powders for distribution among leading supermarkets islandwide. Our newly acquired plant, with state-of-the-art technology in Nalanda Industrial Estate in the Matale District of Sri Lanka, exclusively deals with the ready-to-eat jar products.
Our successful journey into Sri Lanka’s spice industry, which now is over 30 years old, has rewarded us with the prestige of becoming the country’s leading spice manufacturer, renowned for its quality and reliability. Until the dawn of the late 80s’ small time traders in the hub of Pettah dealt with spices. Lanka Spice ventured out by bulk purchasing in a systematic manner of sorting, grading and packaging, which finally opened our doors to processed and value added spices, under strict quality methods. These items today occupy a special place in the country’s kitchens, due to the reliability, safety and quality of each of the products.

To put it in a simple and understandable language HACCP (known as Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points) is a widely recognized and used product safety management method in food manufacturing, processing, treatment and service organization. The implementation of HACCP is a legal requirement for the food industry in many countries worldwide.
HACCP certification is necessary for the food manufacturing industry, as food poisoning germs such as Salmonella, Coliform, Reisteria and Camfilobacter are being detected frequently in food in Sri Lanka. This is why “Mc Currie” insists from its suppliers certification from a reputed independent surveying company from the country of import, that the products imported are free from these food poisoning germs.
