Finding sustainable solutions together
To achieve a sustainable spice industry, we work together with all parties involved. We actively participate in industry platforms such as the European Spice Association and the Sustainable Spices Initiative.
We are a partner to our customers and we collaborate with our farmers on the road towards sustainable spicing.
The major challenges faced by the food industry make constant innovation, knowledge sharing and aligned interest representation imperative to succeed as a sector. That is why we are an active member of the European Spice Association (ESA), the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA), the Royal Dutch Spice Association (KNSV) as well as the Vietnam Pepper Association (VPA), Association of the German Spice Industry, All India Spices Exporters Forum (AISEF) and National Sustainable Spice Program India (NSSP-India).

The Sustainable Spices Initiative (SSI) was founded in 2012 by the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) to transform the mainstream spice industry into a more sustainable market. Together with NGO’s and companies active within the spice and herbs sector we have made the commitment to:
1. Strive for a fully sustainable spice production and trade in the sector.
2. Reach or exceed 25% sustainable sourcing in at least top 3 products categories by 2025.
3. Achieve or exceed 10%-point growth for top 3 product categories by 2021.
