ASTA advocates for a global supply of pure, authentic spices and herbs. The mission of The Spice Integrity Council (SIC) will be to drive awareness, influence and guidance to empower members to detect, mitigate and prevent fraud in the spice and herb supply chain.
SIC Goals include –
- Provide education and explore a self-regulatory program for the spice industry
- Develop guidance on technology and analytical detection
- Partner with key stakeholders including industry, academia and regulators to foster collaborations
It is ASTA’s plan to bring together leaders in the spice industry with experience and dedication to resolving challenges related to economically motivated adulteration. The ASTA Board of Directors has identified leaders in this space to sit on a steering council and we also plan to establish several task forces to execute these goals.
