  • We are the only integrated spice facility in the world from drying to milling.
  • Sources spices through our own JAIN GAP farming scheme which numbers over 5,000 farmers.

  • The spice facility is also completely allergen free.

The organic market in the UK shows no sign of slowing down, with consumers’ awareness of sustainable food chains changing their spending habits. The Soil Association has announced that the UK organic market is continuing to grow, with sales in the past year increasing by 5.3% – which means that £45 million are spent every week on organic produce in the UK; and that by 2020, the UK organic market is predicted to be worth £2.5 billion. The Association went on to report that sales of organic into foodservice have risen by almost 8%, with an increased demand from high street restaurants in response to diners looking for sustainable options. Packaging and wider environmental issues are also still influencing shopper choices and driving the organic market further.
