The Rye Spice Co. Ltd.

Suppliers of Herbs, Spices and other Culinary Ingredients

About Us

The Rye Spice Company have been providing an extensive range of dried Herbs, Spices, Fruit, Nuts and other culinary ingredients for 20 years.

Our main business is supplying into the Food Trade but we opened our online shop due to high demand from the public.  In March 2015 we refurbished our office and changed it into a shop for the public to come and buy direct.  We supply the Cottage Delight Range as well as lots of other cooking ingredients and much more.  Open 7 days a week now also.

We supply to wholesalers, food service, caterers, hotels, prisons, schools, restaurants, ship chandlers,supermarkets and the general public.

The company was started by Robert Hollands Snr and his two sons Robbie and Glenn in 1995 when they started to import Pepper.  Over the years the business has grown and we now stock one of the largest selections of herbs and spices in the South, and supply all over the U.K.

Robert Snr. retired from the business around 2003.  Anita Hollands also works for the company at the East Sussex site and with a third generation Hollands now working on the factory floor it really is a family run business.

We have a competent packing team and the company is growing by the year.

We develop new Spice mixtures all the time and export them also.  If there is something you would like that you don't already see here please do not hesitate to contact us!

We pride ourselves on our high level of quality and are always working on keeping our prices at competitive levels. 

All our products are bought by the ton from reputable companies who are BRC Global Standard A and we pack down into bags and pots in our factory in East Sussex.  All our products are of the highest quality and have passed analysis tests, HACCP systems are in place to allow for traceability and we can provide specification sheets should anyone require them.

All trade enquiries please contact Robbie through our contact page or ring on 01797 225 015.  We can supply anything from 1 small pot to a ton.
