Our company spent many years searching for an ethically-farmed, direct supply of paprika. We had no luck until 2020, when we discovered an incredibly high quality and delicious paprika in the Murcia region of Spain. We were also delighted to realize that Spain has amazing citrus products, including orange, which we now import for some of our holiday blends.
Due to Covid travel restrictions, we haven’t yet been able to visit our trade partners in Spain. A February 2023 trip is planned and we will be excited to tell our customers more of our first hand experiences when we return!
About our Spanish Paprika partners
Gathering Place’s paprika comes from a well-respected and long-standing family business, in the Murcia region of Spain, collectively run by four sisters. The company was founded in 1945 and has been consistently earning business awards and accolades since then. They have grown to be a global supplier of high quality paprika powder by marrying tradition with innovation. The growers who supply their products farm both organically and sustainably, and our trading partner keeps that original purity intact, never supplementing with additives or bulking agents.Their organic smoked paprika is the real deal, authentically and slowly cured over oak for at least two weeks before packaging.
We re-invest our total sales back into grassroots projects in the communities around the world where our products are grown.
