Inspired Cooking. Passionate Living.

It all began in 1881 with Janos Kotányi and paprika. Soon it grew to superior spices and herbs from all around the world – that is our true passion. Then as now. With our spices we inspire people to creative cooking and bring pleasure and passion into their lives. Different countries and cultures have evolved different needs, tastes and habits. Because our focus is on the person and the pleasure they derive from food, our primary focus is always: We must deliver the best possible taste. What we eat is deeply rooted in our regional traditions. To do these justice, our range includes 4,500 items for 20 different countries. Each product is an invititation to you to explore once more the breadth and diversity of the world of taste.

KOTÁNYI has built its business on its corporate values for more than a century. These values have been connected by our passion, family pride, entrepreneurial spirit and creativity to make our vision possible. With a pioneering spirit and innovation, our company has experienced extraordinary, long-term growth by always remaining true to our mission: “Inspired Cooking. Passionate Living.”.

“It is a very special challenge for me to choose only the best spices from all that are on offer world-wide”.
