By doing so, power is shifted from the hands of traders to laborers and farmers, and consumers can support this mission just by committing to buying a different brand of spices. In The Trio from Diaspora Co. are the brand's best-selling spices: aromatic Pragati turmeric, hand-pounded Guntur Sannam chilli powder and the fragrant Aranya peppercorn blend.
Currently, Diaspora Co. makes it possible for consumers in the USA, Canada, UK, Europe and Australia to experience authentic Indian spices, and worldwide shipping options are coming soon.
