The Cape Herb & Spice Company is based in Cape Town, a cosmopolitan city situated at the south-western tip of Africa. The location of the city is significant. In the early 1400’s the European sailors began exploring the west coast of Africa in search of a trade route to the spice markets in Asia. Portuguese explorer Bartholomew Diaz rounded the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 and in 1498 Vasco da Gama established a sea route to India. The Dutch East India company, which was a dominant force in the spice trade, went on to establish a settlement at Cape Town in the mid 1600’s as a midway point for their exchange with Asia. This mix of European, African and Asian cultures has given the city a rich culinary heritage. And it’s against this background that the Cape Herb & Spice Company was formed.
