In a culinary breakthrough, Unilever, one of the leaders in the FMCG world, launched its newest creation – Royco Spices, a captivating range of dry seasonings set to redefine the art of cooking and flavouring in Kenyan households.
The new Royco spices bring forth eleven distinctive variants, each a unique masterpiece of flavour and culture.
The company launched the new variants at an event attended by food influencers Dennis Ombachi, Holy Dave and Owino Sueh.
These will include four blended and seven pure spices namely; pilau masala, curry & spice, Ginger, Garlic, Turmeric, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Cardamom, and Paprika.
The company also launched 2 new variants in the category produced exclusively by Royco. The wet and dry fry spices and nyama choma spices, both are locally packed at Njoro Canning.
“Our commitment to creating unforgettable culinary experiences has led us to craft the Royco Spices collection,” said John Kibira, Unilever Kenya Head of Nutrition.
“Each of our eleven Royco Spices variants embodies the richness of local & global flavours and traditions. From the zest of ginger flavour to the depth of paprika, we’ve left no stone unturned in curating a diverse and exceptional range.”
The move is in line with the company’s sustainability agenda on localization which focuses on working with local suppliers.
The company has partnered with Njoro Canning, roping in local farmers from sustainable sources, ensuring that Royco Spices not only delights the senses but also positively impacts the local communities.
“The Royco Spices are premium seasoning spices because of the high standard of sustainable and quality sourcing. As a leading business, Unilever has a requirement to steam-treat all spices we manufacture and sell, which is a higher standard than local benchmark,” said Luck Ochieng, Unilever Kenya Managing Director.
“Royco is the market leader in the two segments and has been a household name in Kenya for five decades, transforming dishes and flavoring food across the region.”
The Royco premium natural spices with no additives will range from Ksh 10 to Ksh 450.
