Process

PROCUREMENT

We source our spices and herbs directly from the premium growing regions of the world including India, Vietnam, and Turkey. Our global procurement team establishes relationships with local collectors & farmers to ensure a steady supply of high-grade product while maintaining ethical trade practices.

Backward Integration Farming Program for select commodities. We integrate the core values of traceability and sustainability as well as encouraging farmers to uphold hygienic practices.

Verification Through Audits. We audit our vendors’ factories and visit farms to ensure good manufacturing practices are sustained.

Market Intelligence. Scientific crop surveys and forecasting models help us to closely monitor the market movements and make informed decisions while providing our customers with detailed market intelligence.

Inventory Control and Management. During high crop season, we procure and maintain high inventory levels to assure a steady supply of our products.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Our Quality Assurance process is the most important step that complements each stage of our total supply-chain.

All herbs and spices that we directly source undergo strict incoming quality control checks and endure elaborate analytical testing before being released for sale.

A rigid and robust sampling & testing program, at every point of the supply chain, ensures our commitment to the highest quality and product consistency.

The program integrates the knowledge of our agronomists, chemists, microbiologists, food engineers and various quality control personnel.

The program involves:

  • Raw Material Quality Control
