Our Supply Chain

We are here to put money, equity and power into the hands of Indian farmers, and to disrupt and decolonize an outdated commodity spice trading system.
What do we mean by decolonization? We mean creating a spice trade that redistributes power away from solely the trader and instead, empowers its farmers, its laborers and the earth.

Diaspora Co. Model

Traditional Commodity Model

Traditional Commodity Model

In cutting out all middle men, we hugely increase the amount of money we can pay our partner farms. It means we are able to work with much smaller farms who in a traditional model would have lacked the capital or resources to export or scale. Our focus is on flavor, sustainability and heirloom seed, so if a farmer matches those criteria, they can rest assured that they will have a long term partner in us.
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.
