SOURCING

Sourcing image

We source our Tandoori blend from a cooperative of smallholder farmers on the Zanzibar islands off of the eastern coast of Tanzania. Many of these same families have been growing pepper and other spices (including our Cinnamon Verum, Pemba Cloves and Stone Nutmeg) for generations.


All of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar are grown on an EU-certified organic farm.


Meet the Farmer: Bwana Mohammed and Farooq are pictured walking on a vanilla vine-lined farm trail that is part of the cooperative in Zanzibar.
