Serving the Canadian Spice Trade since 1942 CSA Home

Building on Our Strengths

Founded in 1942 at the request of the Canadian government, the original group of 12 companies was made up of the principal brokers, importers and grinders in the Canadian Spice industry at the time.


CSA History
The initial purpose of the Association was to ensure that fair and equitable allocations of the various spices were made during World War II, as it was extremely difficult to obtain supplies due to crop shortages and limited shipping facilities from foreign countries during wartime. Over time, the Association became a useful vehicle for exchanging information about common issues within the industry and government.
