Click to download Burlap and Barrel sells Sustainably Sourced Spices Spices are critical ingredients as they add flavoring and seasoning to dishes. There is a rising concern among consumers regarding the sustainability and quality of spice production. Similar to other farm products like fruits, grains, and vegetables, end consumers demand sustainable sourcing of spices as well. Sustainable production of spices reduces the carbon footprint of the food manufacturers as well as enables a crucial parameter to market their products. Burlap and Barrel is a US-based startup that provides sustainably sourced spices. The startup sources foods that are grown biodynamically and organically using traditional farming methods. The startup connects farmer cooperatives and small farms with high-value markets, bypassing brokers and middlemen. This facilitates marketplace equity and shortens the supply chain. Burlap and Barrel’s solution also integrates transparency and traceability into the spice supply chain. Seed Root and Leaf sources Pure Origin Spices As compared to whole spices, processed spices lower the flavor, ingredient, and texture of dishes. For example, creating ground ginger from fresh ginger reduces the amount of gingerol, thereby reducing its medicinal benefits. It is critical to ensure the quality of spices sourcing to ensure end-product quality. That is why spice manufacturers rely on fresh and locally grown produce. French startup Seed Root and Leaf provides pure origin spices. The startup directly sources the spices right after harvest to retain their seasonality. The startup also supports the sustainable spice initiative to promote sustainable practices in spice production. In addition to the sustainable sourcing practices, the startup uses biodegradable and reusable packaging such as tin boxes and paper pouches. Digital Agro Connect Solutions offers a Digital Marketplace Poor communication between the spice producers and exporters causes inefficiencies in the supply chain. This further drives depletion in quality and food safety standards, thereby negatively impacting final food quality. To prevent this, broad and authentic networking between stakeholders is critical in the spices supply chain. This is why startups build digital marketplaces and networking platforms to connect spice producers, logistics, and customers. Nigerian startup Digital Agro Connect Solutions develops Agro Connect, a digital market that connects farmers, truck owners, and buyers. The Agro Connect platform also allows users to source both low and high quantity orders for spices and other food items. The startup’s solution removes the bottleneck in sourcing for farm produce, especially in northern Nigerian parts. All India Agro develops a Traceable Food Ecosystem Spices processing in controlled environments in factories enable transparency and traceability. However, operations before manufacturing plants source raw or whole spices and herbs are dynamic and, hence, difficult to trace. This is where local sourcing comes in. It allows manufacturers to track and document each aspect of sourcing, eliminating contractors and brokers, further benefiting spice farmers. All India Agro is an Indian startup that develops a traceable food ecosystem. The startup’s platform traces their products from seed to consumption as well as fills demand gaps in real-time. All India Agro ethically sources and creates special organic packs of non-perishable items such as spices and moringa seed oil. Moreover, the startup offers reverse logistics for unsold products that are more than 2 days old. SoulSpice offers Organic Indigenous Spices Organic spices lack harmful chemicals, provide better taste, and are rich in nutrients. These are preferable for consumers who value products that use organic ingredients. That is why spice and food manufacturers utilize organic spices for their products. Furthermore, organic farming of spices reduces greenhouse gas emissions, thereby decreasing the overall carbon footprint. German startup SoulSpice sources organic spices, including various indigenous varieties. The startup grows spices using traditional mixed cultures, thereby improving biodiversity. To ensure equity promoting market, the startup pays the spice producers fairly and directly as well as supports local social projects . In addition, SoulSpice’s spice packs its products fresh by hand at their factory.
