Background:


Origine is a spice brand based in regenerative, sustainable agriculture that produces high-quality, culinary flavors with an emphasis on holistic wellness. As we break into the consumer market we’re looking to partner with like-minded foodies to experiment with our products, whip up delicious creations, and share the love of sustainability and good food with our community. That’s where you come in!


What makes Origine Different:


Traceability: We work on site in Indonesia with small, local farmers to provide support, regenerative agriculture trainings, fair wages, and donations to community improvement initiatives such as eyesight assessments and glasses distributions. 


Superfood Wellness: Each of our products boasts a unique set of health benefits and we ensure the farming and processing of each of our spices creates the highest quality wellness product for our customers’ wellbeing. 


Eco-friendly packaging: all of our products ship in 100% recyclable and compostable materials (when purchased directly).


Sustainable Agriculture: Every single product we put out is grown using regenerative agricultural practices such as using organic fertilizer, non-gmo seeds, polycropping, and replanting over 100% of the trees we harvest to ensure the soil is healthy for generations to come.
