Global flavors,
packed in Bull City

We opened the Spice Lab in Durham in 2023, building on almost 30 years experience since first opening in 1995 in Seattle. (Where we still are!)

Ten Reasons to try World Spice

  1. Quality: Our products are far more fresh than grocery store & other retailers' products, and are free of fillers such as anti-caking agents and excess salt.
  2. Library: Our extensive library contains 300 different spice & tea items, most available in whole & ground forms.
  3. Efficiency: Our time-saving blends not only save you money but also optimize precious kitchen space.
  4. Experience: With hundreds of restaurants served in nearly 30 years in the industry, we have the expertise to ensure accurate and delightful flavors.
  5. Freshness: Our commitment to freshness is evident as we sell our spices within 90 days of packing.
  6. Transparency: We list all of our ingredients and we avoid generic terms like "spices" and use salt and sugar sparingly.
  7. Dietary Considerations: Our products are vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free.
  8. Sizing Options: Whether you need 50 pounds or just half a cup of spice, our range of sizing options caters to your specific needs.
  9. Ownership and Roots: We are proudly employee-owned and Durham-made.
  10. Employee Benefits: We prioritize our team by fully covering excellent health benefits, ensuring that every ounce of flavor is blended, ground, and packed with love.

We want to be the most convenient and comprehensive choice for spices, blends, and loose-leaf teas especially for quality local food brands, restaurants, cafes, & more.

We love what we do, and love helping you make the great flavors that have inspired you.

Growing Local

If our products don't sell in time — we don't leave them on the shelf like a grocery store. They're still great, so we donate them.

As we're setting root here in Durham, we've started by donating to Feed Durham.
