Welcome to the Sahuaro Spice Company


Brief History

Back in 1949 a man named Earl started Sahuaro Spice Company. He purchased spices and packaged them in small retail size packets for Basha's Grocery Stores and the original Food City. He also had a small store that people could go to to make their purchases.He did this very successfully for many years until Sahuaro Spice was purchased by Bowlus Distributing Co. in 1980. The new owners continued selling the small packets along with larger packages for Restaurants and other businesses. The retail store moved 3 times but our customers always kept track of us. Soon there was more of a demand for the larger quantities and the small retail packets were fazed out. Today we are proud to say that along with servicing many restaurants, meat companies, grocery stores here in the valley we also ship to many business out of state. Our spices are sold in their original containers ( this ranges from a 220 lb. barrel of Chili Powder to a 22 lb box of Parsley) 5 lb.,1 lb., 8 oz., and even some 4 oz. bags for some of the bulkier and more expensive spices. We package them in plastic bags with twist ties. It's a "no frills" packaging that seems to work well with our customers as it keeps our prices low. That's the reason we do not accept credit cards too. All of our sales are cash or check only.We receive deliveries of Spices weekly and this insures freshness.
