BOC is helping to keep one of the country’s oldest spice companies at the top of their game – and at the top of their market too. Regular supplies of nitrogen gas play an essential role in getting the highest quality herbs and spices to Britain’s tables.

British Pepper and Spice has a history dating back to over 350 years to the time of King James II. Most households will have at least one product in their kitchen cupboards that has some ingredients from British Pepper and Spice. From parsley to pepper and saffron, all of these different products have to be separately dried, processed and packed.

A key part of this procedure is the milling and packing operation.

To make sure the process is at its most efficient, the company uses nitrogen gas to produce an inert atmosphere.

BOC has many decades of experience in supplying food-grade gases to industry. Food manufacturing is such a diverse sector that the company has become expert at developing innovative responses to individual customers needs. “BOC offered a complete package which met all our requirements,” noted Jerry Forskitt, Operations Director at British Pepper and Spice. “Importantly, they were able to complete the installation of all the new equipment over a weekend in order to ensure that production could continue with the minimum of inconvenience. The whole operation was carried out smoothly and professionally.”
