The Diaspora Co. Model

3 Steps • 6 Months Max
Grown for flavor and aroma, our spices are guaranteed same-year harvest to ensure the highest potency and freshness. We partner with small, multi-generational family farms, paying them an average 6x premium for their regeneratively farmed, single-origin spices. Each spice takes us anywhere from a few months to several years to source, based on rigorous lab testing, in-field visits, and of course, several tastings.
We grow at the rate of agriculture—when a harvest sells out, that's it until next season! This is because our spices are single-origin in the truest sense of the word; our same-year harvest policy guarantees maximum deliciousness & freshness to you!

Traditional Commodity Model

7 Steps • 2-7 Years
In the commodity trading model several farmers crops are mixed together at every stage. Quality is assessed based on aesthetics (color and size) versus how it was grown, which seeds it was grown from, and how it tastes or smells. It means that the farmer has no agency or control over the price they receive, or the quality of the final product. We’re here to say that that system is no longer good enough—we all deserve better.
