About Us

Spice Root brings sustainably grown, organic ingredients from certified organic, bio-intensive farms. We provide zesty spices, nutritious superfoods, Ayurvedic herbs and more – all organic and grown by thousands of farmers in farming communities across India who, like us, believe that organic farming is the solution for nutritional and environmental well-being.
As part of our commitment to Organic agriculture, we have our own farmer programs, located in Bundelkhand region of central India. It is a fertile yet impoverished region – where we are working with the community to develop and improve the water table, alongside our farmer programs.

Why Organic?

Organic agriculture is food as nature intended. It is good for the environment and the soil. It is free from artificial chemicals and additives, ensuring that the food you consume is in its purest form. Instead of using artificial chemicals, organic farming utilises bio-intensive farming and natural techniques.

Organic farming is a sustainable practice that benefits the entire ecosystem – from the farmer, the farm & environment, and the consumer.

Our corporate responsibilities and commitment

On the Farms

We work with local farmer groups in the Bundelkhand district of central India. This is an impoverished part of the country that has lacked in progress due to water scarcity and poor government aid to farming communities. Through our strong commitment to organic farming in this area we educate farmers about the processes of organic farming, identify plants that can grow according to their farm conditions, provide them with free input material (seeds and saplings), help in registering their land as organic, run organic farming workshops with them and also buy organic products that they grow on the farm.

Our educational programs, workshops and on-ground teams focus on using the available resources in the most efficient manner. Organic farming utilises bio/natural- fertilizers, pollution-free techniques and symbiotic relationships between the farm and its local environment. After a few harvests, the results are evident – the soil quality improves because we prohibit using harmful chemicals/processes while farming. Also, we have to actively work to conserve water in this region. For this, we have initiated water harvesting projects and dug wells for villages. This has also helped us check soil erosion. We have dramatically improved soil quality and continue to maintain it. This is an important objective for us, as visible results help us to convert more and more farming communities to organic farming.

Women empowerment

In the stage of processing of farm products, we employ women from disadvantaged communities, encouraging them to become breadwinners in the family. Often these women are uneducated and are unable to find skilled jobs elsewhere. Our gift sets come in handmade upcycled bags made using discarded sarees. These bags are handmade by aforementioned rural women, with love and care. We call these our “Bags of love for life” as they are attractive and can be re-used multiple times.

Above initiatives form our farmer program that provides sustenance to hundreds of farming families, who are local to the region and are desperately looking for empowerment and aid.

Children with learning disabilities

We have also partnered with a local charity and school “Maa Society” (Maa meaning Mother) for children with learning disabilities. As part of their activities, we schedule regular farm visits for them; helping them learn about small-scale farming and develop their skills for independent garden farming. It helps them gain real-world knowledge and adds another dimension to their learning curriculum.

We’d love to hear from you.
