International Spice Conference 2023

Venue: ITC Grand Chola, Chennai, India

Established in 1987, All India Spices Exporters Forum (AISEF) works towards protecting the interest of the spice exporters of the country, by creating a sustainable and pro-development business environment for the stakeholders in the industry. In three decades, AISEF has evolved into the ‘Voice of the Spice Fraternity’. AISEF has developed relationships with all the major spice associations of the world, understood business needs and market changes, and has taken the lead in regulatory matters. AISEF, jointly with IDH (a Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative), WSO (World Spice Organisation), GIZ (The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit), Rainforest Alliance and Spices Board India, have formed National Sustainable Spice Programme (NSSP) to promote sustainable farming.

In a world where food safety standards are challenging and the industrial environment is rapidly evolving, it has become imperative for the stakeholders to address the concerns and imbalances of the industry. Ensuring sustainability of crops and improving the livelihood of the farmers is also a collective responsibility. It is in this context that All India Spices Exporters Forum (AISEF) came up with the idea of the International Spice Conference to provide a platform for all stakeholders of the Global Spice Industry—business houses, spice organisations, policy makers, farmers and end users—to address their concerns and interact with each other. AISEF created this networking platform in the year 2016 along with its silver jubilee celebrations.

World’s Largest Knowledge Dissemination and Unifying Platform for the Spice Industry

Today, ISC has grown to become the world’s leading knowledge dissemination and unifying platform for the global spice fraternity. Five successful editions of the conference have had positive impacts on the industry and its stakeholders. In the previous years, ISC welcomed visitors from a whopping 50 countries including 60 exhibitors and 50 speakers.
