Our organic spices are pure, all natural spices and seasonings and fair trade spices. Our dedication to sustainable sourcing insures you get ethical clean spices.

Using our in-house kitchen we make all our blends in Minneapolis. We grind the spices that need to be ground, roast the ones that need to be roasted and keep some spices whole that are traditionally whole in ethnic blends. Did you know that cultures did not grind all their spices and most cultures will use both whole and ground spices in their blends?

This ensures that you get the best flavor, color, aroma, and taste.

We're committed to providing pure organic seasonings that taste great and promote a healthy planet. We're proud to offer the largest selection of organic ethnic spices and spice blends available.
