The Schwartz brand was established in Canada in 1889, and was the first company in Canada to sell pure spices. From the beginning there was great emphasis placed on product quality, and they believed that it was better to buy smaller quantities of pure, top quality products than it was to buy poorer quality products in bulk. By the 1930’s Schwartz products were on sale in over 50 countries.
In 1984 Schwartz was bought over by McCormick, one of the largest producers of herbs, spices and seasonings in the world. McCormick have developed strong relationships with some of the best suppliers in the world to create top quality products, and they envision a world united by flavour, where healthy, sustainable and delicious go hand in hand.
The beauty of Schwartz herbs is that you can pick them up freshly sealed from your supermarket and have a 'taste you trust' on your dining table just hours later. The journey to the supermarket is a long one with quality control carefully exercised throughout the process. Schwartz has nurtured strong relationships with only the best suppliers around the world which has enabled them to get closer to the raw materials, giving them valuable input into the entire process.
