Consumer demand for culinary and wellness botanicals is on the rise, and Starwest Botanicals, the industry's leading wholesaler of organic, herbs, spices, and teas, is here to meet it with its latest innovation - Eco-Pouch herbs and spices.
The new, smaller pre-packaged line of spices makes for an easy grab-n-go purchase and a simple complement to the bulk bin section. Building off consumer demand the line includes popular adaptogens like ashwagandha, licorice root, nettle, and turmeric that may help support healthy stress and energy levels and overall mental balance.
To improve sustainability and maintain peak freshness, the new pouches are sealed in eco-friendly packaging that can easily be recycled.
"Eco-pouches are the ideal entry point for consumers looking to incorporate benefit-driven botanicals into their culinary and wellness routines," said Cole Daily, chief executive officer, Starwest Botanicals. "And, our new sustainable packaging makes it easier to recycle after each use."
All Eco-Pouches can be recycled through the Store Drop-Off stream with exceptions for the cloves, cinnamon, and turmeric pouches. Designed to protect herbs and spices from light degradation, the custom packaging is opaque and BPA-free.
Available in 21 of Starwest Botanicals' top-selling, organic & ethically sourced items including:
Dandelion Root Raw

All of Starwest Botanicals' herbs and spices are no-ETO and non-irradiated.
