Seasoned Pioneers

Seasoned Pioneers

We are a small team of six, aka the Super Spicy Six! Our humble headquarters are located on the paradise peninsula known as The Wirral, where we make all our products.

Our Story

The story began in 1999, practically the Stone Age. Mark Steene founded the company after an interest in seasonings was sparked while travelling worldwide: 'During my travels I enjoyed a multitude of local cuisine. On my return I was astonished that I could not recreate these dishes using the seasonings and blends on offer in the UK. I made it my goal to inspire others by offering premium, authentic products.'

Influential food writers have recognised us as leading experts in the culinary industry. For example, Delia Smith, Rick Stein and Nigella Lawson have mentioned us organically in their cookbooks and articles.
