Our Pledge

We understand how vital honesty and transparency are in order to maintain harmony with our communities - both internally and externally.  For this reason, as an organization, we pledge to always keep to the following commitments:

I. Only Offer Fresh, All Natural Spices, Direct From Our Farms 

Vanille Vanills’s mission and philosophy are simple - to unlock the delicious flavours and health benefits of truly amazing, all-natural spices by sourcing directly from our farms in select regions with superior terroir, and shortening the food chain by eliminating unnecessary middlemen

Pledge 1 - Premium Quality - Always Fresh, All Natural Spices 

II.Ensure Full Traceability and Single-Source Spices

We either own or directly partner with small farmers to source the highest-quality, premium spices we offer to you for sale. This allows us to offer a more direct route from previously inaccessible farms directly to your table without unnecessary middlemen. This direct-trade model enables us to deliver a fresher, single-source product that is traceable to the exact farm from which it was sourced from.
Pledge 2 - Direct Trade & Traceability

III. Pursue Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Business Practices

We are committed to using the most sustainable farming practices to ensure the preservation of the unique ecosystem and biodiversity in our farming locations around the world. We do this by not only avoiding synthetic fertilizers or pesticides but also spreading awareness and offering educational courses to local partners in the field of organic production. 

Pledge 3 - Social Well-Being & Economic Prosperity

IV. Prioritize Well-Being of Our Farm Communities

Rather than growing in large, mono-cropped plantations, we are independent, small-holder farmers whose dense agroforestry systems act much more like a healthy forest, and less like an industrial farm. This approach yields products with a deep complex flavour. It also has a real and positive impact on both the forests and the farming communities that depend on them.  We aim to improve the overall standard of living in our locations while allowing us to provide you with better products.  We are proud to pay our farmers a premium price, invest in their cooperatives, and help build libraries and community centers in the rural forest communities where spices are grown.
