The goal of Love that Spice is to continue to share the health benefits of spices and herbs and the range of boosters as well as bold flavors it can add to traditional and non-traditional cuisine. Love That Spice brings century old international health and cultural use to a local platform--filling a health and cultural gap.

In this day and age, time and health are of the essence. LTS is unique in that it offers up-to-date news on the relatively unknown health benefits of superfoods, spices and herbs and seeks to engage with new customers so that they walk away confident in using spices in their own cooking and aware of the benefits of such. Last but not least, LTS is seeking to bridge communities by bringing together different cultures via their common denominator, food.
