We’ve partnered with Diaspora Co. for sourcing black pepper. This collaboration has enabled us to deliver fresh taste of spices in our concentrates and keep up our commitment towards procuring from local, agricultural and sustainable ecosystems.
The Aranya Pepper is grown on the Parameswaran family farm in Thirunelly, Kerala which has been pesticide free for 30+ years. This vine ripened spice is hand harvested to keep the distinct flavor intact.
Through sourcing the rich Aranya Pepper, we are able to maintain transparency over a short supply chain, understand the conditions in which the spice is grown and the wages paid to the farmer involved.
