New Spices with Burlap & Barrel

A few weeks ago, we added Burlap and Barrel single-origin spices to our selection (most of our teas, herbs & spices are from Mountain Rose). They are available in small-sized glass containers or larger plastic containers, unfortunately not yet available in bulk from this supplier.

Are these packaged spices organic, although none of them are labeled as organic?

You asked, and we reached out to our supplier. Here’s the answer we received: “Most of these packaged spices are grown organically, with some certified by local or European agencies. However, organic certifications are expensive – often too costly for independent farmers to afford. We are working with partner farmers to help them obtain organic certifications. This is why our labeling does not reflect the organic growing process.”
