The seed

This is one caraway seed, taken from a bag containing thousands exactly alike. Consistently perfect in shape and flavour, they have conquered the world of bakeries, food, drink and spices industry – and many others.

How do we ensure the quality?

The Nordic fields

Located in Finland, our caraway fields enjoy the sun that shines day and night in the summer. It ripens the seeds particularly aromatic and rich in essential oil. The cool climate also helps to reduce the need for pesticides.

The adverse effects of monoculture are avoided by using effective crop rotation. Caraway actually improves the soil for other crops. With our optimized farming methods in the clean Nordic environment, we can ensure the purest end product with high oil content and low microbiological content, even size and colour as well as consistent quality.

The story

Over two decades ago, Nordic Caraway was founded by two men who shared a common vision: to produce caraway in Finland. At the time, there was no such concept – most of the world’s caraway was produced in much warmer climate by Eastern European countries.
Starting from the scratch, the men slowly and methodologically built the farmer network and perfected the processing plant. The only thing going for them was quality – the reputation of producing consistent quality year after another was slowly building up.
Now, over twenty years later, Nordic Caraway has earned the trust of the world market. The combination of quality raw material, innovative processing plant and focusing on one produce has not failed them. Their dedication to a single, perfect seed has paid off.
