  • Did You Know...?

    Vanillabazaar is certified by the Fairtrade Foundation and the Organic Federation in the UK to sell products to these standards. This ensures the full traceability of all these products back to the grower. The organic status ensures that no pesticides were used in the production of these pods and the Fairtrade mark ensures that the growers always get a fair price for growing them. Supreme pods vary in size between 14cm to 20cm and each pod has extra special care taken to look after them to ensure a high level of vanillin and good moisture content. These pods will not disappoint!

  • Vanilla Market

    The price of vanilla is ever-changing, and the vanilla market is currently cooling down after years of exorbitant prices. Unlike several other businesses, who are unfortunately not adhering to a specific code of conduct, we are following and respecting the minimum price guidelines that have been set out by the government; this is despite us still holding a large stock, due to the pandemic!
