ABOUT MILL & MORTAR
Mill & Mortar was established on February 1, 2008. Behind Mill & Mortar stands Iben Büchert, who previously worked in the consulting industry, but has now adopted her hobby of interest in food as her means of living.
Iben has a long-standing experience as an entrepreneur at Quartz Strategy Consulting where she was one of the founders.
Touching on the inspiration for founding Mill & Mortar, Iben says:
“I’ve always been interested in both the creative and business aspects of food, and Mill & Mortar is a dream come true. When I started Mill & Mortar, I, of course, used the skills and experience I had from the consulting industry, but I also needed to get out of the world of suits and Powerpoint presentations and work with real products. Where I often had to grab the balls of others, it’s nice to both throw and grab my own now. ”
Mill & Mortar is located in Vedbæk, Denmark – with a spice factory with storage, production and office facilities.
Currently, we have 12 employees who work diligently to deliver spices and almonds to wholesalers and distributors in over 22 countries.
CONCEPT AND PHILOSOPHY
The purpose of Mill & Mortar in all its simplicity is to tell the many amazing stories about spices and to provide the inspiration and the ingredients to spice up your food. We select most of our spices according to a principle we call ‘Product of Origin’, which means we are looking for:
1. Spices that look, smell and taste like when they were harvested.
2. Spices with an origin. We know when and how they are grown and harvested. We like to ensure that the process is sustainable; that the resources of the soil are not depleted, and that humans, animals or other ecosystems remain unharmed.
3. Unique products that can tell a story about people who work hard to create something unique.
The quality of the spice is paramount – we want our consumers to be inspired to use raw, organic products that enrich their lifestyle while looking good on the kitchen shelf.
