The Zinthiya Trust, in partnership with social enterprise Tomorrow Together, has launched a brand new spice range in a bid to generate sustainable income for the work of the charity.
The new spice range, called Spice Twenty, recognises the history behind the famous spices of Sri Lanka and is the result of many months of research and development. The name Spice Twenty is a nod to the theory that no more than 20 spices should be used in a dish.
Zinthiya Ganeshpanchan, Founder of the Zinthiya Trust, commented on the new spice range: “I’m from Sri Lanka myself and wanted to bring together all of the most significant Sri Lankan herbs and spices under one brand. Sri Lanka is rich in spices including cardamom, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, pepper, lemongrass and turmeric which grow abundantly on the island.
“I wanted to create a brand that would celebrate where I come from but that would also work to help the cause that I carry closest to my heart. With a proportion of profits from Spice Twenty going to the Zinthiya Trust we will be able to continue to support disadvantaged people in Leicester and Leicestershire.”
Currently, the products are stocked at the charity's Community Shop found at 10 Bishop Street, the Chapel Café, and Christopher James Deli on Queens Road, Leicester.
Zinthiya added: “We are looking for more retailers in the Leicester and Leicestershire area in order for us to expand our sales.”
Interested stockists should contact Zinthiya via email.
