"Organic Spices that look, smell and taste like when they were harvested and sorted by hand. Made with love with in Ibens spicefactory, Vedbæk/Denmark"
Mill & Mortar was established on February 1, 2008, and is located in Vedbæk, Denmark – with a spice factory with storage, production and office facilities. The purpose of Mill & Mortar in all its simplicity is to tell the many amazing stories about spices and to provide the inspiration and the ingredients to spice up your food. We select most of our spices according to a principle we call ‘Product of Origin’, which means we are looking for:
1. Spices that look, smell and taste like when they were harvested.
2. Spices with an origin. We know when and how they are grown and harvested. We like to ensure that the process is sustainable; that the resources of the soil are not depleted, and that humans, animals or other ecosystems remain unharmed.
3. Unique products that can tell a story about people who work hard to create something unique.
The quality of the spice is paramount – we want our consumers to be inspired to use raw, organic products that enrich their lifestyle while looking good on the kitchen shelf.
Mill & Mortar distributes the best quality spices from all around the world. We offer organic, fair trade, traceable and single-estate products.
Suppliers – We know ours and stipulate the highest quality standards! We work vigorously to build a healthy and trustworthy relationship with all our suppliers because we rely on the fact that they will always deliver the best quality. Conversely, it means that the individual supplier must be satisfied with the terms of trade and cooperation that we offer.
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.
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 a 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.
