Tropical Spices

We offer a full line of spices that are sourced and managed by teams who are on the ground in all key producing origins.

These include ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, and coriander.

This robust spice sourcing network feeds into our world-class processing facilities in India and Vietnam, which offer the highest finished product quality, safety and security with comprehensive customisation capabilities.

We offer complete product customisation across the entire basket of spices for size, oil content, colour and chemical profile, including single or multi-origin blending (including curries) for unique ethnic flavors.

Thanks to our global network and our close relationships with growers, we’re the world’s number one for spices, garlic, onions, capsicum and specialty vegetables.

We do everything we can to give our customers the best possible quality and variety.

For example, we have discovered that if we use advanced roller and pin mills which generate less powder and heat, we can preserve the essential oils which give spices their intense flavour.

We also preserve their oils with a unique cryogenic milling technique, and use artificial ice to grind them at approximately -20°C.

As we have the largest spice-processing facility in Asia, use multiple mesh sizes which maintain the quality of our tropical spices, and have global economies of scale, we can offer our customers unparalleled quality and variety.

As we have a presence in so many spice-producing countries and regions, we are able to offer customers a guaranteed supply, while our economies of scale enable us to manage the political, currency and crop risks. Our networks and direct buying help us to avoid delivery delays.

Thanks to our ability to gather market intelligence from so many locations, we are able to make purchases at the right time, reducing costs for customers.

We monitor the safety of our tropical spices at every stage of our operations to make sure that they are safe, wholesome and ready-to-eat.

We use steam sterilisation to clean and process ensuring our spices are cleaner than the industry standard.

As we keep a tight control of the whole supply chain, from growing and harvesting to processing, storage and transit, we can protect the spices’ natural flavour.

We undertake a number of sustainability initiatives to improve the economic, social and environmental impact of our spice range. Our processing plants pay competitive wages, offer training and advancement opportunities, and are safe places for all our employees to work.
