Herbs & Spices

Add a taste of Fair Trade to everything you make with sustainable herbs and spices. Thousands of small scale farmers grow spice and herb crops, yet industry consolidation has allowed two multi-national corporations to dominate the market.  With Fair Trade standards for herb and spice production, small farmers receive a price that allows them to compete in the market, as well as a premium to invest in social and economic projects for their communities.

In 2009, 96,084 pounds of Fair Trade Certified spices were imported in the United States. This resulted in over $40,000 in community development funds to support farming organizations in India, Uganda and Sri Lanka.
