Exporting spices to the USA


I want to start exporting spices into USA. How should I start? How do I connect to real importers In USA ? What is the market size of selling spices in the USA


Hi there,

I hope you get an answer to your question shortly.

In the meantime, I recommend also looking at the Institute of Export and International Trade’s helpdesk for more specific advice:




We can’t provide you with a ready-made list of potential customers but there is support available to research a market from the Department for International Trade (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-international-trade)

You could contact your your local DTI International Trade advisor and setup a meeting. They will be able to explain the various options.

Regarding the size of the market, you can get a complete breakdown of current exports to USA via the UK Trade Info website. For example in March 2017, the value of Turmeric exports to USA was £76,535, compared to just £7,218 in December 2016.

Hope that helps and good luck with your business.
