The Vanilla Queen purchases vanilla beans directly from vanilla farmers whenever possible.
Our vanilla beans are sustainably grown and the farmers have been paid a fair price.
Our products are carefully chosen and will enhance everything you cook, bake, use in your bakeries, restaurants or retail products or sell in retail stores.
Nearly all vanilla is grown organically, but most farmers cannot afford to pay the costs for certification. Because the beans have been grown sustainably, we don’t stock certified organic beans, but we can get them for you by request.
And most importantly…
Purchasing from us and our retail partners assists us in the work we are doing with farmers and women’s programs worldwide.
You are all welcome to purchase the “wholesale sizes” in our store. If you are interested in larger volume orders, please contact us at 800.757.7511.
