About us

Our Founder, Anthony at our store in Singapore.

who are we?

Crafting authentic, Traditional Flavours of Singapore since 1986. Anthony’s parents are the first-generational spice makers and having grown up in a spice family, he always has a heart for spice crafting and creating flavours. After leaving his job as a design draftsman in a shipbuilding company, he decided to start his own spice business to pursue his passion for mixing spices. He aspired to be different from the big players that were already in the market, by sticking to his strong beliefs in providing and crafting ethically- sourced, quality and unadulterated spices to produce authentic, traditional flavours of Singapore for all to enjoy. At the same time, he wanted to practice this age-old craft with a modern take in the hope to attract more young and cosmopolitan consumers to start cooking, eating healthier and encouraging bonding with their loved ones with home-cooked food.

Back in those days, spice premixes were rare or almost non-existent as it is a norm for every household to have their recipe to cook a curry. Grandmothers of the different races who patronize the spice store would customize their rempah (spice paste) to suit their liking. As a result of this, Anthony is equipped with the knowledge to differentiate good quality spices from mediocre ones, as well as crafting traditional spice blends to cook the many iconic dishes of Singapore the old-fashioned way.

Anthony The Spice Maker is a well-established name in Singapore because of the recognition, validation and feature from the local home cooks, top chefs, various news and media outlets as well as people from all over the world, all walks of life, race and religion who enjoy the traditional spice blends that we craft.

Anthony’s youngest daughter, Min Ling officially joined her father in the spice trade in 2016 as a 3rd generation spice maker after finishing her university studies in Singapore. She was exposed to the world of spices from a young age, and she remembers fondly tagging along to visit her father’s spice factory and visiting the supermarket spice counters that Anthony once had. She grew her love of cooking and appreciating traditional foods by watching her grandmother blending spices and cooking with them to make her signature dishes like Nonya Chicken Curry, Sambal Asam Fish and Sambal Prawns. Today, Min Ling is equipped with the art of spice mixing because of her natural interest to learn the nuts and bolts from her father. With that, she is determined to continue her father and grandmother’s legacy by practising the craft and preserving the heritage flavours of Singapore to share with the generations to come.

What are we doing here in Switzerland?

Spice Girl Min Ling and her husband, Chef Mickaël

We have expanded to Switzerland because we wanted to bring our amazing products closer to Europe and around the region. It is also a highly demanded request from many of our international customers and fellow Singaporeans who live far away from Singapore, in countries such as – Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States and many more. Some of our motivations to be based in Switzerland is also to be able to share and celebrate authentic heritage flavours with the food enthusiasts here in Europe and around the region and also to satisfy the cravings of foodie Singaporeans who miss the taste of home.

For a start, we have created an online store with worldwide shipping retailing all of our handcrafted traditional spice blends of Singapore, seasoning rubs, assorted raw spices as well as our range of wellness products imported freshly from Singapore in small batches and then packed in Switzerland. For some of our products, we have adapted to using Swiss natural ingredients such as salt and herbs. Please visit Shipping Info to find out more.

Operations in Switzerland are managed by both Min Ling and Mickaël who are based in the canton of Vaud. They met each other at the spice store in Singapore; the rest is history. 😉 Expect to see them in action occasionally at the farmer’s markets if not, feel free to reach out if you have any queries, collaboration ideas or even to chat about food, they are up for it anytime!
