Our R&D Department offers the perfect balance of creativity and technical expertise. Our expert food technologists work directly with you in every phase of the creative process, from prototype to finished product. For over 70 years, this one-on-one relationship has led to the creation of some of the most successful products on food service tables and supermarket shelves.

At First Spice, we are an extension of your product development team. As your partner, we are able to make a seasoning blend to match an existing flavor profile or develop a completely new product to meet your exact specifications. We offer creative methods for achieving a clean label and an accurate ingredients statement without sacrificing flavor profiles, USDA, kosher and nutritional requirements.

We have three manufacturing plants, each equipped with professionally staffed laboratories. This enables each of our R&D teams to work closely with you throughout the development process. The quality, consistency and care we take in developing and preparing our products keeps First Spice on top of our competitors.


We are trouble-shooters. Our three facilities have trained food technologists and food science experts who are ready to assist you with production problems. When you call, we listen. We work with you to determine potential causes and solutions to your manufacturing questions. From fat separation to discoloration, we are here to help you.


With coast to coast facilities, First Spice provides quality products, quick turnaround and affordable and timely shipping. We understand the unique requirements of the food processing and institutional food service industry. Our products are not complete until they are packaged to suit your individual needs.
