Where am I From?

Our Organic Turmeric is grown in the Kerala region, known as "India's Spice Garden". Our producer works with small artisan farmers throughout the growing process to make farming a viable option, including education in sustainable organic farming methods, making a marked difference in the lives of these Indian farmers. 

Why Fair Trade?
With your help, we’re making a difference to the lives of those who produce our turmeric.

Your Fair Trade contributions are being used for:
  • Ongoing education for farmers explaining new techniques which will help to increase crop yield and reduce waste
  • Water conservation structures to store run-off water for use in the dry season
  • Solar lamps which enable students to carry on with their studies during power cuts and so reduce the risk of damaging their eyes from reading in a poor light
