By joining the SSI we hope to collaborate to achieve lasting transformational change in the communities from which we source, help tackling sustainability issues including climate, child labour and living income.
Current spices of interest within the SSI platform include ginger, turmeric, cardamom and cinnamon, and we hope to encourage others in the herbal infusions sector to join as well in order to bring even more herbs into focus, such as peppermint and liquorice for example.
“We know we’re only on part of the solution to driving for improved working conditions and quality of life for communities in our supply chains. That’s why we work in partnership with others to catalyse change. We are really looking forward to the knowledge sharing and learning opportunities our membership with SSI will bring.”
