The spice blends are a big part of what makes Indian food so unique and delicious. One of the most important aspects of Indian cooking is using fresh ingredients to create dishes that can be enjoyed all year round without sacrificing taste or flavour. And there's no denying how much we love our spice blends - garam masala, tandoori masala, curry powder etc but where do these flavourful concoctions come from? How we at ORCO manages to produce high quality spices?

ORCO spices are 100% organic

At Orco, we realized that it is important to offer people the real quality they deserve. Nothing is more important than health while still enjoying the flavours of your favourite dishes. Hence, we bring the best quality spices. In this blog we are going to explore how ORCO ensures the high quality spices while staying true to the concept of being organic.

Orco believes in quality

We believe in the idea of “quality over quantity.” ORCO brings you the best quality organic spices made with age-old sustainable techniques that ensure the texture, aroma and nutrients are maintained for a longer time.

Let’s tell you how our spices are pure to the core

Our mission is to provide 100% natural and clean natural spices and condiments that are hand clean, hand pound, and hand ground. Our spices retain a unique natural fragrance and earthy aroma while maintaining their nutrients. This is possible because the hand pound process uses less than 200 RPM as compared to a machine that uses over 2300 RPM - which kills the nutrients and the authentic taste and flavour.

Further to produce high quality spices, we follow to ensure highest quality for our Indian food lovers:

  • Procuring from certified farmers: In the first place, we get our spices from certified organic farmers who use natural organic manure and not the chemicals or man-made fertilizers. We handpick the premium quality whole spices before proceeding further.
  • Manual Cleaning: We have a trained team of women who clean these spices themselves and remove any kind of unwanted particles and later dry them in natural conditions. This is just like how our grandmothers used to do it for us with lots of love. Further these cleaned whole spices are checked by an inspection team to ensure quality control throughout each step of production.
  • Use Chakki instead of Artificial processing: Next, we pound these spices using a stone grinder for maximum flavour extraction. It is sent to a chakki or mill for making the powder. Finally, the spices are hand-ground and this requires A LOT OF PATIENCE AND STRENGTH. The traditional method of hand pounding and hand ground, allow spices to retain their nutritional value as opposed to machine-made flavours which tend to lose them when processed in high-speed machines. We ensure that there is no adulteration on any kind in any of the spices that we process.

You may check out some of the ways to check if there is any adulteration, read our blog.

  • No colours or added chemicals: No food colours or preservatives are added to the spices that we process.
  • Eco-friendly packaging: While we talk about high quality spices and healthy living, we also consider that a healthy environment is important hence we use eco-friendly packaging with no laced chemicals on the packaging material.
  • Certified from Renowned organisations: Our products have been certified as pure & hand made from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to European Union's Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development (APFPED)

At ORCO, we ensure quality at each step of the production and we try to stick to our own traditional methods. Chakki fresh and hand-pounded spices and masalas are our age-old traditions, but at the same time they are human intensive and time consuming in nature. This intensive manufacturing process gives employment to women from rural India who are experts in the organic manufacturing of spices and know how each spice should be treated so that the aroma, texture and flavour is maintained for a long period of time. 

We also have expert team of experienced chefs to prepare recipes for unique blends such as brown mustard, Himalayan pink salt, chai masala, organic kadha and more. These are all ingredients that add an element of flavour where they're used.
