Lionel Hitchen manufactures an extensive range of herb & spice extracts. Working with long established supply partners around the world, we source the herbs, spices, chillies and botanicals with a focus on quality, availability and originality. From these fabulous, natural materials, we manufacture herb and spice extracts in various formats suitable for a broad range of food & beverage applications, savoury and sweet.
