The Spicery was started by James Ransome in 2005. James had worked as a chef in some of the top restaurants in the UK and Australia and spent prolonged periods travelling in Indian and South-East Asia, this really fuelled his interest in food.
He began selling spices on a market stall in Bath. After overhearing many customers’ conversations commenting on how they wouldn’t know what to do with a lot of his exotic spices he came up with the genius idea of selling the spices in kits, along with a recipe card for particular dishes. This evolved into sending the kits out via mail order. They are now a team of 20 and are supplying over 75,000 customers worldwide. Well done James!
