HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Leema Eco World is home and kitchen brand and home of Leema Eco World Spices. But it’s more than just a brand— Leema has grown into a community.
We are a small business based out of North Dakota specialized in directly sourcing freshly harvested spices. We source Sri Lanka's freshest, heirloom, and single-origin spices, directly from our family farms and partner farms to bring you next level flavor and fragrance.
We work hard to build relationships with farmers who shares the same value as us. We are in the quest to discover spices and tea growers with quality and sustainability in mind.
We source Sri Lanka's freshest, heirloom, and single-origin spices and teas directly from our partner farms to bring you next level flavor and fragrance to improve the quality of your food journey.
Our unique blends help tell our story through their beautiful aromas and the depth of flavor they add to your food. We develop and curate each and every spice blend and tea blends with almost care and precision. After many test batches, we develop all our blends. In order to ensure freshness and potency, we roast, grind, process, blend and pack everything in small batches.
We also offer bulk spices to restaurants and producers, as well as wholesale to specialty retailers.
We are a woman-owned small business, working to improve the lives of farmers and add value to our local community.
With our roots back in Sri Lanka, growing up we were always surrounded by spice and tea farmers. We had first hand experience on how spices and tea plants grow. My family has tea estates and processing facilities. So I grew up with surrounding all the ups and downs coming along with being farmer and procerssor. My father taught me everything i know about tea, he is in the tea industry for more than 35 years now. He taught us how to grow and process high quality finest tea and spices. He has done several inventions and hold several patented technologies to improve the quality of production.
We also know how much hard work and commitment it goes to grow beautiful spices and teas. This is why we always pay 2x to 6x times the market price for our farmers.
My husband and both graduated from Missouri University and moved to North Dakota. Once we started our lives here in USA, I realized how distance we are from the world of spices and teas, how much of a quality difference there is for fresh quality spices vs store brought spices. This is how I started this entrepreneurial journey.
We have a thoughtful and short supply chain. We process and blend everything here in our North Dakota facility in small batches. My husband and I are the only employees in the business. We're growing a better spice & tea trade, equitably and deliciously, one product at a time.
We hope you enjoy our spices and tea blends as much as we do.
