Visit our Spice Company
Old Mansion Foods owns several warehouses and production facilities in central Virginia, allowing us to store raw materials in close proximity to our cleaning, sterilizing, roasting and grinding operations. At our warehouses and processing plants, we receive our containers and truck shipments, package our bulk material, computer control inventory and ship out your orders. Nearby is our 137,000 square foot headquarters which includes our corporate and sales offices, laboratory, test kitchen and some production operations.
The spice industry is an agricultural business and is subject to supply and quality changes with each season. Weather conditions, political uncertainty and price instability can severely affect world supplies. Old Mansion’s highly trained Quality Control staff samples and analyzes all spices and blends with a battery of laboratory tests to ensure they conform to our exacting requirements.
Specification sheets are available on all spices, and special requirements with regard to origin, grind and microbial load parameters are easily met. Those procedures ensure our customers receive consistent quality and competitive price with every order.
Research and Development
Behind our great products is our secret ingredient – our people. Although our work environment is highly familial, as many of our employees have been with us for numerous years, our highly trained and dedicated staff consists of food scientists, food technologists and Corporate chef with years of expertise in food manufacturing.
Our research and development team can work with your recipes, creating custom products for you, or take your concept and turn it into a viable market-ready product. We have hundreds of pre-developed seasonings for your use that can be a foundation to create your unique sauces, custom spice blends or whatever food service product you are looking to produce. We can guide you through the required FDA/USDA labeling process on any product we manufacture for you and furnish nutritional analysis on each as well.
