Keeping up with the coir

Salix’s Technical Director David Holland visited Sri Lanka over Christmas with his family to see how coir fibre production is shaping up:

“We have developed a close relationship with the community that enable us to sustainably import large quantities of high quality coir fibre.

As well as seeing the villagers at work with the latest crop of coconuts, we enjoyed a game of cricket with some of the children. It’s a very special place and we are proud of the difference a lasting and consistent supply contract has made to the community.”

Salix is now Europe’s largest producer of coir fibre rolls.
