Spice World Organic Offerings Meet Consumer Demand for Global Cuisine

ORLANDO, Fla., March 13, 2024 – Spice World’s broad variety of fresh and ready-to-use garlic, onion and ginger offerings meet consumers’ continued demands for innovative flavors in their meals. At Expo West 2024, Spice World will highlight the versatility of its organic offerings with recipes featuring Asian, Middle Eastern and Caribbean cuisine among others.

According to the Organic Produce Network, sales of organic produce topped $9.4 billion in 2022, up 3% over 2021. Neilsen data further shows organic produce sales in 2023 increased 2% over 2022.  Spice World’s organic garlic pairs well with consumers desire for global cuisines — notably Japanese, Korean, Thai, Greek and Middle Eastern cuisines1 – as these cuisines prominently feature garlic.

“During the pandemic, the global flavor trend exploded as consumers at home sought to experience adventure through their cuisine choices,” said Chris Kiser, CEO of Spice World. “Our organic products work in a wide variety of cuisines, especially Asian and Latin cuisines that combine a panorama of spices and flavors for dishes with gusto.”

Many consumers also take a hybrid approach to meal prep by combining scratch and ready-to-use items in their recipes. Taste of Home magazine surveyed more than 4,000 people over age 18 in 2022 to see how eating habits changed since 2020 and found that 60% cook at home more than five days a week and that 53% of consumers want ways to make meal prep easier.2

“When you combine the desire for organic products with the demand for global flavors, Spice World’s ready-to-use organic minced garlic, onion and ginger are often the key ingredients consumers reach for to create distinctive and authentic ethnic meals at home,” continued Kiser.

Among the menu samples at Expo West 2024, Spice World will highlight its organic minced garlic, chopped onion and minced ginger in tasty recipes including:

  • Coconut, ginger, organic garlic and onion chicken curry over rice
  • Organic garlic and shallot hummus with feta and arugula oil
  • Organic garlic maple sausage, served with mini pancakes
  • Organic garlic, turmeric, pineapple and banana smoothie
  • Shallot, garlic and tomato cream cheese with bagels
  • Ginger, peach, blueberry smoothies
