For your information:

There is something going on at AKO! Beside the world-wide valid Management System for Food Safety (FSSC 22000), AKO had been certified according EU-ECO Regulation for Organic Products in June 2014. Now we are planning the expansion of our ecological product range. Cinnamon (Cassia) and fennel has already arrived at our warehouse. You can find further information about available Organic qualities on our price list (page 2).

Chili crushed with/without seed

Chili crushed 1-5 mm with and without seed started its comeback to our assortment.  When required, we will blend the product according to your need in appropriate quantities.

Coriander – Eastern Europe

Unfortunately, this product is turning again into a problem this year. There are currently no more deliveries from the Crimea due to the embargos. The conflicts in the Ukraine cause problems while trying to remove the goods from the fields. The prices increased in the last two weeks by 30 % and there is no end in sight.

Garlic – China

After the summer break in China it is clear now that not enough goods can be dried. Therefore, there is no great chance for the production of granulate and powder. We expect increasing prices.

Caraway – Finland / Eastern Europe

After the low prices in the last 12 months there are not enough goods in the market. Despite of new crops in the current weeks, the prices rise by 20 % at the beginning of the harvest.


Unfortunately, we now feel the entire impact of Indian’s poor harvest. The prices have doubled in India in the last two months. New goods will arrive, the prices will increase.

Onions – India

A slight correction can be granted due to currency fluctuations but there are no changes concerning the scarcity for the next months. Please check your stock and your demands.

Spice mixes

We sort out some spice mixes belonging to our product range. As our core competencies are import and processing of tropical spices, mixes have no more future for us. 






All items, not marked with a * in our price-list are „Original-Import-Rawmaterials”. Products, which had been analyzed upon arrival in our factory. They adhere to the microbiologic demands of the EU, but had not been recleaned or processed by us.    Thus prices are very favourable. But please note: We will refuse claims of Original-Import-Rawmaterial with regard to potential impurities.


Items, marked with „N“  

have new names or are new within our range.
