What do I Taste Like?

Where am I From?
All of the spices in this mix are grown in Kerala, part of the Indian Peninsula, under organic guidelines.
Why Fair Trade?
We’re passionate about supporting the farmers and workers who grow these spices.
Funds are used in various ways including sustainable community projects, such as water conservation; to pay fair wages; support education for farmers in new techniques, as well as education for children; and ensure contracts for all workers.
Our aim is to use totally eco-friendly packaging. We’ve moved away from our old-style tubs for this product and in addition to our own beliefs, we’ve listened to our customers to reduce waste in all areas possible.
Something that we have to consider when packaging our products is the durability of packaging and whether it is ‘fit for purpose’. By this we mean that the products have to reach you in one piece, be kept fresh for you to enjoy and that we use materials which are suitable for the product itself.
Whilst our old-style tubs are recyclable, we realised that these are not as eco-friendly as we would like them to be and so we’ve been busy repackaging our range of powders to use FSC cartons instead.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) improves how the world’s forests are managed so all of our new cartons carry the FSC logo. The FSC card carton is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
To ensure the powders are kept fresh and uncontaminated, they are packaged in an inner bag which is recyclable, and then placed into the carton.
We have to get the cartons from the packers to our warehouse or to stores. To do this, we use sturdy cardboard boxes which double up as a shelf-ready tray for use in stores. This replaces our old card trays and plastic shrink-wrap. In this way, we’re reducing waste and plastic.
