Our suppliers are skilled and passionate spice farmers, who usually value quality just as we do. Their farming is characterised by proud age-old traditions in spice cultivation. Of course, we also demand high standards from our partners, in terms of quality, processing, packaging and shipment of the products, and encourage spice farmers to cultivate and develop new varieties.
Quality – Our spices are hand harvested, hand-sorted and hand-packed
There is ample difference between hand-crafted work and machine labour. Our farmers predominantly tend to their soil and produce according to ancient traditions, which means that the spices are hand-harvested and hand-sorted. While this is more time-consuming than machine-processed products, it is also, in fact, a quality assurance of the goods in the cultivation field. In addition, we carry out thorough quality control of each product before it is put into stock in our factory in Denmark. To this effect, we have skilled packaging personnel who prepare our spice blends, weigh and pack spices by hand, etc. This kind of controlled system is inherent in our way of work.
Ecology – with flavour in focus
We mainly have organic products in our range, some even wild organic, especially because they taste better in most cases. Spices that are not driven by artificial remedies are permitted to mature naturally before harvesting and develop pure, raw aroma. In cases where you do not find organic products on our spice shelves, it is either because there is no organic variant or because the conventional spice is truly just a delicate product. An example of this is our smoked HOT pepper.
Mill & Mortar’s spices – for both professionals and those who just enjoy good food
All ‘foodies’ appreciate high-quality spices and many like to mix their spice mixtures themselves. At Mill & Mortar, we offer an extensive range of basic condiments with over 60 spices and salts – and there are new exciting variants added every year.
And while everybody loves to eat good food, not many can dedicate several hours to the kitchen. Food must be easy and quick to make, but also tasty and flavourful. And hence, we have a wealth of well-composed spice blends with a variety of different ingredients and recipes on ways to use – all you have to do is add salt as needed (our spice blends do not contain salt as we consider it an unethical practice).
