Salts, Spices and Teas for Health and Wellness
Throughout history, herbs, spices and salts have been revered
for their healing power, naturally providing remedies for a
wide range of ailments. From soothing bath soaks to healing
spices such as turmeric, cinnamon and ginger and a new line
of wellness teas, The Spice Lab offers an excellent selection of
products for health and well being.
“We source the highest grades—our turmeric has 20%
curcumin,” says Brett Cramer, who with his wife Jennifer
founded the company in 2009. “And with a large range of
packaging options, we can create a nearly infinite number
of options to deliver quality products at competitive price
points for many retail environments.”
The company moved into a new 75,000 square foot production
facility in March, quadrupling its production capabilities to
better serve current customers with greater capacity and faster
turn-around as well as to pursue more private label work.
“Our new facility is a game-changer, giving us new ways to
serve more customers—from custom blending and private
label store brand—to the ability to produce 25,000 units per
day,” adds Cramer.
The Spice Lab is a woman-owned and family-run business
offering artisanal salts, premium spices, seasonings, loose
teas and gourmet gifts. It is one of the largest U.S. importers
of Himalayan salt and salt products including Himalayan
salt shot glasses, salt plates and bath salts. All products are
processed and packaged in the company’s HACCP certified

A Matter of Trust – and Sales!
In June 2017, Label Insight released results from its new
survey, which asked more than 1,000 consumers about their
feelings of confusion with ingredients and labeling, and the
impact this confusion has on their purchasing behavior.
Sixty percent of respondents trust the brand less when
they see ingredients they don’t recognize or find confusing;
35 percent do not buy a product when they find ingredients
on the label that are confusing; and nearly two-thirds (64
percent) would be willing to switch to another food prod-
uct if they understand the ingredients in that product.
But perhaps the statistic of most interest to retailers and
CPG companies is the one showing that more 54 percent of
those consumers would pay more for a food product that
contains ingredients they understand or recognize.
“Retailers are facing an increasing demand in terms of
providing product information, and many are seeing their
long-term customers jump ship to competitors who provide
more information,” Label Insight’s Moorhead says. “This
presents an opportunity for new brands to gain market
share, but also for established brands to secure loyalty by
opening up about their products.” HW
