Fadna Tea (Pvt.) Ltd., a pioneer in the Sri Lankan herbal tea industry, is making waves with the launch of their new product, “Diabe Tea-Sabaragamuwa”. Fadna introduced the concept of sharing the natural goodness of conventional beverages with the world and now brings its own functional herbal tea products by preserving their natural goodness, while conforming to international standards.
This product uses 100% natural ingredients to maximise its benefits for patients suffering with blood sugar-related disorders. Understanding the challenges faced by such patients in society, Fadna Tea was motivated to develop a product that would somewhat alleviate their daily struggles. The product is developed in collaboration with the Accelerating Higher Education Expansion and Development Operation (AHEAD) and the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the Sabaragamuwa University.
Speaking about the project, Sabaragamuwa University Vice Chancellor Senior Prof. Udaya Rathanayake stated: “As a university, we are continuously engaging in these types of product development projects, and launching and commercializing Diabe Tea-Sabaragamuwa is a great initiative as well as a motive for upcoming projects. We expect to do these types of projects similarly with Fadna and also other companies for the betterment of society.”
Fadna Tea Managing Director Mr. Chamendra Somatunga said: “Innovation associated with problem solving is vital for the development of societies and countries. Commercializing products that are born out of this innovativeness not only opens up new avenues for people, especially those suffering from blood sugar-related disorders, to adopt healthier lifestyles, but also supports the local economy. We thank the AHEAD Grant for their collaboration, research, and assistance in making this product a success. We hope to introduce and commercialize similar products in the future to serve more people in the long run.”
Fadna Tea (Pvt) Ltd. strives to continuously innovate in collaboration with esteemed research and educational institutes across the country. Research and studies are constantly carried out in collaboration with several universities to improve the quality and efficacy of the products, where research results are published in globally recognized journals. Revitalising the tea industry of Sri Lanka through the superior quality that can be seen at the root of all their products, Fadna Diabe Tea-Sabaragamuwa is a stepping stone in Fadna’s journey towards truly elevating the lifestyles of the people of Sri Lanka.
Fadna products are exported to many destinations across the world. With these great strides, Fadna has expanded its production domain to functional cosmetics based on traditional formulae used in the past.
