We are Aina Rabel and Nomena Raharinosy, two childhood friends born in Madagascar, who have made Toronto our home for the past 19 years, and now we are co-founders of Vanilla & Spice.
We offer Madagascar vanilla beans and ground vanilla powder, and handcraft our vanilla extract and vanilla sugar with the same gourmet Madagascar vanilla beans. We source our vanilla beans directly from small farmers who cultivate the orchid vines in a natural environment, free of hormones and pesticides.
In our gluten-free vanilla extract, we use Ontario vodka made from 100% Ontario corn and we leave real vanilla beans inside the bottle.
Vanilla & Spice offers Madagascar vanilla beans and handcrafts premium vanilla products for Canadian consumers.
A couple of years ago, we met with small vanilla growers from Madagascar who were seeking to expand to international markets. We’ve also observed the challenges of Canadian restaurants and bakeries to find a local supplier of high quality vanilla. Seeing an opportunity to bridge the gap between our two worlds, we created Vanilla & Spice.
Our mission is to be a local Canadian supplier of high quality vanilla while supporting small farmers in Madagascar to expand their reach and elevate their socio-economic status.
We stand on the values of authenticity to represent the best of Madagascar, service excellence to our customers, and premium quality in the products we offer.
