AISEF – THE BEGINNING:

The All India Spices Exporters Forum was formed in 1987 for the coordinated development of the Spice industry, and to supplement the efforts of Spices Boards, India. The major objective of the Forum was to promote goodwill and cooperation among exporters and to stand together, while representing in industry problems at the right avenues.

Since inception, the forum has come a long way and now has over a hundred members from different parts of the country who are closely related to the spice trade. The very fact that the Forum now represents over 90 percent of the spices export trade speaks for the important role that it plays today.

Over the years, the Forum has also been able to influence strategies for spice and spice products.
