WHAT IS NOT FIT FOR OUR OWN CONSUMPTION IS NOT FOR SALE
 
 
 
Spice trade has been in existence for over 3500 years. Spices have been in use for their culinary values, medicinal properties, in the perfumery industry and for decoration. Spices find mention in the holy scripts like The Vedas, The Koran and The Bible. 

In the ancient times, the source of spice trade was known to a few. The Arabs of west Asia mainly controlled trade between Asia and Europe, where spices were valued as much as gold and silver. Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama and Alexander the Great all were fascinated by the spice trade of the East. They knew that one who controlled the spice trade would become prosperous. Vasco da Gama went around Africa and touched Kozikode on the south western coast of India in search of spices. 

The European's quest for control of spice trade, led to a tirade of exploration in the East. In many ways, the spice trade has shaped the world order we live in today. 
Today, oriental spices are indeed the soul of all cuisine. In the western world these spices evoke dreams of exotic tropical islands and exciting expeditions to unknown lands, which once led to the rise and fall of the Empire.
