Our ginger farms
With its nutrient-rich soil and abundant tropical rainfall, Fiji is perfectly suited to ginger farming. We’ve partnered with local farmers and invested in a new, fully accredited processing facility, helping to create opportunities for the communities on Viti Levu, and making sure The Ginger People’s Fiji ginger is as pure and delicious as it can be.
On the hunt for powerful and pungent Peruvian ginger, we found ourselves in the foothills of the Andes as they descend into the Amazon basin. This high jungle region is called Bajo Pichanaki. With temperatures around 77F (25C) year round, the warmth and heavy tropical rain create an ideal growing environment for ginger. Grown at an elevation of 3200ft (1000m), the slopes allow for excellent drainage, a critical component to successful ginger farming. It is here where we discovered exactly what we were looking for: a rich source of golden Peruvian ginger.
Our Indonesian ginger grows on the island of Java, one of the best ginger growing regions in the world. With its rich, volcanic soil, intense humidity, and lush vegetation, Java is home to a unique ginger-growing industry.
Our Indonesian farmers grow and harvest premium-quality ginger while maintaining the integrity of the natural environment through small-scale farming practices. Our Arjuna ginger comes from the lower slopes of the Arjuna volcano, where our farming partners cultivate small hands of Sparrow Ginger long into the growing season, yielding the intense heat for which this variety of ginger is so well-known.
Our relationship with China began in 1999, when The Ginger People’s founders, Bruce and Abbie Leeson, travelled to Fujian province to meet with the Li family – successful local ginger growers. Since then, we’ve worked together, sharing our mutual passion for the best quality ginger to grow and nurture the farmers in this thriving ginger-growing region.
The farms that grow our Taiwan White ginger are nestled among hills and mountains, far from both industrial and residential zones. Our certified organic ginger is processed in a ginger-dedicated factory, allowing us to keep our products pure and ensure the world’s most rigorous organic standards are adhered to.
