About us

  

Pinch Seasonings is based in the beautiful seaside town of Hove, East Sussex and is run by husband and wife team, Richard and Frances Beasley.  We left our 9 to 5 jobs to pursue our dream of running our own business doing something we love - and we love cooking with spices and herbs! Our inspiration comes from the spice markets and épiceries of the South of France where the wonderful choice of spices, salt and blends encouraged us to get creative in the kitchen.

And so Pinch Seasonings was born. We spent 2011 researching, blending, cooking and eating with friends and family.  Our aim is to source the best herbs, spices and salt  from around the world and create our own range of blends to inspire cooks of all levels of ability.  You don’t need to be an expert or have a detailed knowledge of a particular cuisine to recreate great flavours at home.  We have been on a voyage of discovery - we still are - and we hope you will come with us.  

The majority of our herbs, spices and blends are certified organic by the Soil Association (Licence number DA 218723).  

About our suppliers

We are really keen to work directly with small producers who, like us, are passionate about the quality of their products.  So far we are buying directly from the producers of our sea salt and rapeseed oil.  Click on the photos below to find out more about Lionel and Robert.
