Source of Our Fresh Produce – Sri Lanka
As a country blessed with a tropical climate and a geography that suit a variety of agricultural crops, Sri Lanka has been supplying a range of tropical fruit, nut, and vegetables to the world.
On top of Sri Lanka’s climatic advantage, the fertile soils and the conventional wisdom handed down from generation to generation, the established agricultural facilities, irrigation systems, and distributed rainfall patterns are quite conducive to the cultivation of such crops.
Produced by autonomous clusters of farmers, around eighty different varieties of fruit and vegetables are grown in Sri Lanka’s varied agro-climatic areas. They collectively produce more than 900,000 metric tons of fruit and vegetable annually and export both fresh and processed varieties to many destinations in the world. Improved techniques on crop cultivation especially under poly-tunnels, optimum input applications, pest and disease control, post-harvest management, quality packaging, and improved transportation methods are practiced to ensure the best quality. The government also encourages the private sector engagement in commercial cultivation for further expansion.
Wash your hands thoroughly before preparing any type of food and before eating. Use clean knives and cutting boards. When preparing fresh vegetables and fruits, cut away any damaged or bruised areas because bacteria that cause illness can thrive in those places. Bruises and mold are signs of spoilage. You can throw away the outer leaves of leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and cabbage.
Wash produce under running tap water and scrub with a brush when appropriate. Do not use soap.
Store fresh-cut items, such as salad or fruit, in the refrigerator for best quality and safety. Be sure that fresh fruits and vegetables are not stored under raw meat, which could drip on them and contaminate the produce with bacteria. Whole (uncut) fruits and vegetables, such as apples and bananas, can be stored at room temperature.
Yes, you can freeze cut-up fruits and vegetables; however, vegetables should be blanched (heat-treated) before freezing. The heating process inactivates enzymes, which can cause flavor or color changes during frozen storage.
Fruits usually need added ingredients (sugar, citric acid or lemon juice) to prevent browning and retain their quality.
Cross-contamination is the spread of bacteria from one food or surface to another. To avoid cross-contamination, keep cooked or ready-to-eat foods separate from raw products while shopping, preparing and storing food items.
Wash cutting boards, dishes and countertops with hot, soapy water after preparing each food item and before you go on to the next item. If possible, use one cutting board for fresh produce and a separate one for raw meat, poultry and seafood. When cutting boards become excessively worn or develop hard-to-clean grooves, you should replace them.
