Why we love it

We’re sure our teachers had the best intentions when warning us of the dangers of eating paste. But we’re also pretty sure they did not mean this paste. It's a gorgeously aromatic, smoky-sugary vanilla, made from the best ingredients and a traditional recipe for a “ground” texture, that just begs to be eaten.

How it does good

Ethical trading, fair wages, quality vanilla

“Vanilla” is often synonymous with simple, neutral, or boring. But the vanilla bean is one of the hardest crops to grow. It only flowers once a year and has to be picked, by hand, right away. Eighty percent of vanilla comes from Madagascar, where its been painstakingly harvested for generations. But, at the same time, almost 80% of the people in the country, vanilla farmers included, are living in poverty. The Vanilla Bean Project set out to change this, with a commitment to buying from small-batch, women-owned makers, breaking the tradition of a few vanilla companies monopolizing the market and selling their extract for high prices the growers don’t see. The result is a high-quality extract that ensures financial security for the farmers, suppliers, and communities it comes from.

  • responsible sourcing

    By sourcing vanilla beans directly from smallholders, the Vanilla Bean Project ensures a transparent supply chain, all the way back to the village the vanilla orchid was grown in. They're dedicated to providing continuous support to their partners and paying for the full value of their crops.
  • low carbon footprint

    Inspired by farmers markets, the Vanilla Bean Project purchases its vanilla from local growers in Madagascar, cutting down on the impacts of transportation and storage. By sourcing naturally, they also limit the use of synthetic ingredients and petrochemicals.
  • supporting key causes

    They work specifically with women-owned suppliers, supporting gender equality and economic diversity in developing communities.
  • recyclable packaging

    All of their packaging is 100% recyclable.
