Our Story

Hill & Vale was set up in early 2020 by our founder Angus with a singular purpose of improving our food system.

While working in the ingredients and flavour industry, Angus enrolled on a part-time masters in agricultural economics to understand more around sustainability within food supply chains.

Increasingly aware challenges that lie ahead for us all, Angus left his job to start a company that would try and do something about it.

Having worked with flavour and seen first hand the impact it can have on us all as consumers, the idea for a new business started to become clearer. 

Following three trips to spice farms in India, Spain & the UK and inspired by the landscapes and environments where spices are grown, Hill & Vale was born.
