The Spice Trading Company


The vibrant colours, exotic tastes and heady aromas of the ancient spice market in Old Delhi are the inspiration behind The Spice Trading Company.

I had visited the spice market as a footloose wanderer journeying across the continents exploring the sights, sounds and flavours of the world.

Founding The Spice Trading Company in 2009 as a stay at home Mum with a young son I developed a range of all natural spice blends that evoked the flavours of my global travel adventures.  Introducing my son to the range of flavours he was able to broaden his tastes and understanding of herbs and spices.

Whilst travelling in India I recollect buying 2 books and sending them home in the early 90’s.  One was “Ayurveda – The Science of Living” by Dr Vasant Lad and the other “Herbs that Heal” – Natural Remedies for Good Health by H.K. Bakhru

Since starting my business my love of spices has evolved leading me on path of studying Ayurveda.

I have since completed a Diploma of Ayurvedic Lifestyle & Consultation in 2018!

My knowledge of herbs & spices has expanded and the health benefits they have for our minds & body.

My dream has come to life.  Since the original range of Gourmet Blends …I am now so proud to introduce a range of Ayurvedic Seasoning Mixes that are Certified Organic herbs and spices and will benefit different body types and conditions.

It has been important to me that the Ayurvedic Spice Blends be Certified Organic and traceable right back to the farmer.  I envisioned the spice blends to suit everyone so they can gain the benefits of Ayurveda and the natural health properties of the herbs & spices in day to day living.

I add these Ayurvedic blends everyday to my meals or before or after a meal depending on how I’m feeling at the time.  I hope you and your family enjoy them and benefit as much as we do!

Warmest Regards

Kim Ridley
