Spice Route Oregano - the herb of joy
Origanum vulgare

Oregano has a piercing scent and a flavour, which is stronger than its closest cousin, Marjoram. Oregano is native to the Mediterranean region and was cultivated as a strewing herb for ages. Oregano from various parts of the world like the European, Chilean, Greek and Mexican have distinctive characters. The most famous of them all is the Mediterranean Oregano.

Oregano grown in our farms are harvested when the plants are in full flower and when their vitality and flavour is at the peak. They are then dried using a unique process.

OreganoA bold and gutsy herb, Oregano's flavour can be recalled by any Pizza fan. Its use in the Western countries rose sharply in the late 20th century due to its peppery bite and the zing it provides. Oregano is also widely used in many herb blends and to flavour delicate tasting foods like egg dishes, lightly cooked fish and vegetables.
