Sourcing image

We've partnered with DACE, a social enterprise in Vietnam, to connect with the farmers growing our Purple Shallots. The shallots are grown by communities of farmers in Vietnam's Red River Delta. They are learning to grow higher-value crops and transitioning to organic and regenerative agricultural methods. We're honored to support them in that work, and to share their deeply flavorful shallots with you!
