Throughout the nineties John Dean worked closely with the first project to grow vanilla in India.  It's fair to say without John's determination and his committment to helping the people of India, vanilla would not be growing in India on the scale it is today. We continue to work closely with our skilled team in India to ensure we maintain our superb quality.

Gourmet Vanilla started in Kew in Surrey, on the edge of west London.  We now have a base in rural Shropshire, near Much Wenlock.

Gourmet Vanilla was set up by Maggy Dean and her father John Dean, to market the first vanilla pods from South India. John had a unique knowledge of vanilla spanning more than 20 years.
