Cinnamon: A Brief History

Genus ‘cinnamomum’ was first discovered on our paradise island by the Portuguese traders, in the year 1518. This is not to suggest that the trade of cinnamon did not exist until then – it did and was widely popular amongst Arab traders who kept it a secret for many years. It grew as a desirable form of preservatives for meats and also for its numerous medicinal uses. The Portuguese therefore sought to monetize it and enslaved the island population; taking control of the cinnamon trade for about a full century.

The Kingdom of Kandy then allied with the Dutch in the year 1638 to overthrow the Portuguese from the island. However, the trade of cinnamon was once again out of the islanders’ control and remained monopolized for over 150 years. The most coveted historical evidence regarding the trade can be found in the up-country Dutch Agreement (Hanguranketha Agreement) signed in the year 1766 by the then King Keethi Sri Rajasinha and the Dutch Government.

The British took over thereon in the year 1784 and sometime after, when they too were overthrown and Ceylon gained independence, the trade grew organically across the world. By the 1800s, cinnamon was not too much of an expensive and rare commodity, as traders of the island had begun to cultivate it in other parts of the world. Regardless, Ceylon Cinnamon still stands as the most purest form of cinnamon that exists in the world even today.
