We offer herbs and spices in various convenient packaging sizes. Varying from 50 grams to 25 kilos. Handy such a huge stock, but how do you store these products? Always keep them tightly closed in a dark place. Whole herbs and spices have a longer shelf life than the ground varieties. The ground variant can still be kept for a long time, but they start to lose taste after six months. Do you prefer to order more often, smaller quantities.
