Sparkling Kithul Raa
Carefully produced while following the highest manufacturing standards, our sparkling kithul raa is everything wonderful about Ceylon, in a can.
Our Island’s Pride and Joy!
While our Sparkling Kithul Raa of Ceylon has the potential to be someone’s favorite beverage, the cycle of production that it goes through is a perfect display of harmony between human and nature.
Harmonious Kithul Sap Extraction
The kithul farmer begins the production process by preparing the palm tree for sap collection. A tree primed for collection by the farmer using natural materials, is climbed twice a day. A food-graded container full of kithul sap is collected and replaced with an empty one.
Fully Automated, Collaborative Collection
The sap is collected from farmers by our team at Agri Ceylon Suppliers, adhering to pre-agreed standards of sap collection and quality. Our mechanism is fully automated and promotes respect and benefits for farmers.
Innovative Storing and Testing
The collected sap is transported from farmers’ lands to our factory and stored in freezers. This is done in record time, following the highest hygienic standards. Sap is tested in our laboratory to ensure highest quality production.
Streamlined and Efficient Production
Sap is taken through filtration, fermentation, maturation, pasteurisation and carbonization, after which our Sparkling Kithul Raa of Ceylon is canned, capped, labeled and stored under optimal conditions in keeping with Excise Department standards.
Ethical Marketing and Benefits
Our finished product is marketed to consumers, highlighting its natural qualities, its unadulterated benefits and by paying homage to the industry from which it sprang. Kithul farmers working with us benefit from our sales, which we use to boost the lives of their families.

Raga - Sparkling Kithul Raa of Ceylon
Raga Sparkling Kithul Raa of Ceylon brings to the world for the first time, the traditional and natural taste and goodness of a beverage gifted from the kithul palms of Sri Lanka’s rainforests.
Ethical Waste Management
Our entirely automated sap collection mechanism and our production processes were all designed, implemented and maintained with the concept of “minimum waste” in mind. All of our processes work in harmony with nature and obeys her rules.
As our raw material kithul sap is converted to Sparkling Kithul Raa, it goes through a filtration and natural fermentation process with no external substances being added and no existing substances being removed. After production, external containers are cleaned using normal detergents; this wash-away water is collected and treated in treatment tanks to meet Central Environmental Authority standards.
Internal pipelines used for production undergo Clean In Process(CIP) using chlorinated water. The effluent discharge from this is treated through treatment tanks as well. The final outcome is reusable water, which does no harm to the environment.
