Sri Lanka is the world`s largest producer and exporter of pure Ceylon cinnamon and suppliers have 70% of the global market share.

True and demanded pure cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka and it is also native to Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lankan grading system divides the cinnamon quills into main four groups:

  • ALBA, less than 6 mm (0.24 in) in diameter
  • Continental, less than 16 mm (0.63 in) in diameter
  • Mexican, less than 19 mm (0.75 in) in diameter
  • Hamburg, less than 32 mm (1.3 in) in diameter

These groups are further divided into specific grades. For example C4, C5, C5 Special, H1.

Any pieces of bark less than 106 mm (4.2 in) long are categorized as quillings. Featherings are the inner bark of twigs and twisted shoots.

Chips are trimmings of quills, outer and inner bark that cannot be separated, or the bark of small twigs.
