A month has passed since Green Mart (No. 50, Borupana Road, Ratmalana 10390 Ratmalana, Sri Lanka), a gourmet supermarket, opened in Ratmalana, a suburb of Colombo.

The store opened its doors on March 29. Hameedia, the leading menswear brand in Sri Lanka, says that it decided to open the grocery store with the aim of “revolutionizing the foodscape of the country, with an emphasis on helping the local community.” Fouzul Hameed, the Managing Director, commented, “When COVID-19 struck Sri Lanka and the world, next to safety, food was the next main concern. We, as a nation, went through a lot of hardships as people struggled to find food. So, as a corporate, Hameedia looked at how we could contribute to feeding the community. The result of our efforts was ‘Green Mart’.”

In addition to locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, the store also carries health food products such as nuts and dried fruits. It offers a full range of food products, including pasta, sauces, jams, dessert ingredients, and seasonings. In May, it began selling fresh juice (100 rupees each) of mango, pineapple, papaya, and other fruits.

Opening hours: 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Delivery service is also available, offering free delivery within a three-kilometer radius of the store.
