We were born out of a relief project that helped to rebuild livelihoods of those devastated by the
Tsunami that hit Sri Lanka in 2004 and brought a dreadful end to 40,000 lives.
Dr. Bronner’s involvement in the aftermath to rebuild cottage industries that were thus destroyed was
the stepping-stone to establishing Serendpol in 2007, facilitating the shift of its agricultural raw materials to Fair Trade and Organic (FTO) sources.
Serendipol is the flagship of Serendiworld projects that now supply FTO raw materials to Dr.Bronner’s.
The operations commenced on an overrun, dilapidated Desiccated Coconut Mill and two shipping containers converted into office space. During the initial years, many had reservations about the sustainability of organic farming, fair trade and would tout the projected to be “another fly by night operation’’. Born from devastation & naturally resilient to challenge, we overcame many of these trials and tribulations to become one of the leading global producer’s cum exporters of FTO Virgin Coconut Oil within an incredibly short span of time.
