Our Story

At Steenbergs, we are passionate about providing organic spices, loose leaf tea and organic cooking ingredients packed with flavour, aroma and provenance.

We want to make you smile by providing you with the organic and Fairtrade spices you want to buy without having to compromise.

Steenbergs' herbs, spices and teas are: ethically sourced - many carry the Fairtrade Mark; organic; environmentally sound - Steenbergs is carbon neutral; packed full of flavour; stylishly (and functionally) packed; and there for you to create fun and delicious dishes and drinks. So, as we say, Spice - Season - Savour - Sustainably with Steenbergs spices.

Steenbergs is a family-run and very friendly firm, committed to organic, Fairtrade, the environment and our people. It was set up in 2003 by Axel and Sophie Steenberg (pictured) in North Yorkshire. We have moved three times since set up and are now in a purpose-built, ecofriendly factory, but still just 200 yards from where we started!

We are at the forefront of Fairtrade spices in the UK and Europe and continually strive to work in an eco-friendly manner. At Steenbergs, we have, also, incorporated many environmental features into our factory and use 'green' suppliers wherever possible. Furthermore, we are carbon neutral.

Something which probably sums up all that we do to deliver spices to you sustainably and ethically minimising our impact on the environment and caring about the people in the supply chain and community is B-Corp which is independent verification that we are using Steenbergs as a business as a force for good.
