Emily: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! For longer than many of us can remember, Afghanistan and the rest of the Middle East has been considered a war-torn region. Afghanistan has been in conflict for decades. We founded Rumi Spice to use spices to counteract that story. We direct source the highest quality spices from rural farmers and women in Afghanistan to help provide reliable wages and economic stability. We are on a mission to create connections to the vibrant culture of the Middle East, its delicious food, and its people.
