On the menu: ONE Chilli Grinders

Refillable, reusable and recyclable - need we say more?

Ok, ok, maybe a little bit more! These spice grinders are the latest addition to our in-store Malawi range. They're made using Malawian Birds Eye chillies and a portion from the sale of these products goes back into supporting the smallholder farmers who grow them.

With three flavours to choose from: a hint of smoke, a punch of garlic and the traditional Peri Peri kick, we've got options to suit a wide variety of meals. And at just £1.50 each, why not buy one of each to have on hand when cooking up a storm?

We wanted to share three recipes from ONE Foundation so you can try out these fiery flavours on proven dishes! These spice grinders will add the ‘heat of Malawi’ to any meal, from stir-fries to eggs on toast. But we do recommend going easy on the quantity until you're comfortable with the power these little products pack!
