Vanilla is the second most expensive spice after Saffron. It was itroduced to Europe in the 16th century from Latin America. The various sub-species of Vanilla are grown in different parts of the world such as Madgascar, other tropical areas around the Indian ocean, South Pacific, West-Indies and South & central Americas. The most common source of Vanilla extract is the sub-species Vanilla Planifolia. Madgascar leads Vanilla production accounting to over 90% of the world's production.

We produce Vanilla extract from the sub-species Vanilla Planifolia and source our Vanilla from the Southern part of India. We utilize a method called Super-critical-fluid-extraction in which we use CO2 gas as the agent to extract the purest extracts.
