This international gathering invites all farmers, processors, traders, testers, and regulators working in the spice and herbs industry to attend talks centering on the emerging trends and new applications that will impact the future quality and sustainability of the spice industry.
Established in 1987, All India Spices Exporters Forum (AISEF) works towards protecting the interest of the spice exporters of the country, by creating a sustainable and pro-development business environment for the stakeholders in the industry. In three decades, AISEF has evolved into the ‘Voice of the Spice Fraternity’. AISEF has developed relationships with all the major spice associations of the world, understood business needs and market changes, and has taken the lead in regulatory matters. AISEF has also entered into joint initiatives with organisations like IDH (a Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative) and WSO (World Spice Organisation), to ensure sustainable spice farming that facilitates economically viable, socially conscious, and environmentally responsible products.
In a world where food safety standards are challenging and the industrial environment is rapidly evolving, it has become imperative for the stakeholders to address the concerns and imbalances of the industry. Ensuring sustainability of crops and improving the livelihood of the farmers is also a collective responsibility. It is in this context that All India Spices Exporters Forum (AISEF) came up with the idea of the International Spice Conference to provide a platform for all stakeholders of the Global Spice Industry—business houses, spice organisations, policy makers, farmers and end users—to address their concerns and interact with each other. AISEF created this networking platform in the year 2016 along with its silver jubilee celebrations.
