We supply close to 10 countries across Europe, the United States, and Canada from our headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and our European sister company, HLB Tropical Food in Kelsterbach (Germany), as well as our warehousing locations in California, Florida, Texas, Toronto, and Vancouver.

Don’t know what to do with all that organic ginger? Peel, chop & freeze! You can also make it into a paste for a convenient use in soups, smoothies, teas, or stir-fries. 
Organic Ginger Paste Recipe:
- 1 cup fresh ginger, peeled & chopped 
- 1/4 cup water 
Blend together into a paste and either freeze in small batches (ice cube trays!) or keep it in your fridge to use as needed. Will last several weeks for your pleasure. Enjoy!
