A Tale of Three Spices

Batch: 9th March

Trading.

Ginger and turmeric rhizomes were sourced from reputable farmers. They were cleaned, dried and packaged before selling at the local markets.

The Onions, however, underwent both primary and secondary processing. After sourcing, the onions were thoroughly cleaned to remove debris after which they were sun dried. This led to the secondary processing which was size reduction. They dried onions were introduced into the milling machine and grounded into Powder.
