spices are single origin, sourced directly from small farms around the
world. Most of our spices are organically grown. They are harvested
by hand, dried naturally and transported whole to preserve freshness.
Our spices are non-irradiated and naturally free of gluten, allergens
and any additives, colorings, anti-caking agents and other fillers.
Burlap & Barrel is building new international spice supply chains
that are equitable, transparent and traceable. We connect- smallholder
spice farmers to high-value markets, we educate consumers about the
impact of product traceability on human rights, and we emphasize unique
products with terroir that are grown biodynamically using traditional
techniques. We work to end inequality and exploitation in food systems
that disenfranchise skilled, serious artisans along the entire chain.
Mainstream conversations around food sustainability rarely consider
the people involved in growing, harvesting, transporting, processing
and cooking food. Sustainability is discussed in terms of environmental
impact, or the comfort of livestock providing meat, dairy or eggs. We
believe that the standard measures of sustainability must evolve to
consider the conditions in which the farmers who drive global food supply
chains earn their livelihoods. Single origin ingredients draw attention
to the unique environments in which incredible ingredients grow and
to the farmers with the expertise and commitment to grow them well.
