The Ginger People
In the world of seasonings and spices, ginger is a bit undervalued. Sure, we love its spicy, pungent flavor in sweet or savory dishes or its ability to instantly cleanse our palates between meals, but few of us are aware of just how many health benefits ginger brings to the table. The Ginger People are on a mission to give ginger its much-deserved time in the sun. With an entire line devoted to this time-honored spice, The Ginger People has evolved into the leading ginger brand in the U.S. market. More importantly, the brand has devoted much of its time to sourcing the very best ginger from all over the world in an effort to deliver a quality product that also invigorates local farming communities. Here’s how this passionate brand is spicing up pantries everywhere.
The History of The Ginger People
The Ginger People was started in 1984 by Abbie and Bruce Leeson with a mission to develop the world’s best range of ginger products and ingredients. After becoming increasingly aware of the many health benefits ginger has to offer, the Leesons traveled the world in search of the best ginger-growing regions. They eventually found that Peru, Indonesia, Fiji, and China offered the richest, most sustainable sources of natural ginger. This allowed the duo to realize another dream: To work with and empower local farming communities while ensuring the very best ginger on the market.
The Ginger People Company Mission
The Ginger People’s mission is to be the most trusted ginger brand in the world through quality, innovation, social responsibility, education, and commitment. By partnering with farmers and producers in the premier growing regions of the world, the brand supports communities and works to create loyal relationships with its suppliers. The entire Ginger People family shares the goal of creating and promoting great-tasting, healthful ginger products and sharing its passion for this beloved superfood.
Benefits of The Ginger People
If you’re not familiar with the many benefits of ginger, it’s time you became familiar with this medicinal root. Used for centuries for its healing properties, ginger has been shown to help relieve a variety of ailments, including nausea, headaches, arthritis, and can even soothe sore throats or relieve aches and pains related to colds and flus. Ginger also has circulatory benefits and can work to boost blood flow, delivering a healthy dose of energy. While improving circulation, ginger also works to lower blood cholesterol levels by supporting liver function.
The Ginger People offers the highest quality ginger on the market, a portion of which is Certified Organic. All products are also non-GMO and sustainably harvested and many are even naturally gluten-free.
