Herbs, spices & ingredients manufacturer

We have been bringing global flavours to UK food retailers for over 60 years. Crafting unforgettable products for consumers to savour. Set apart by taste, defined by responsibility.

Our Corporate Mission:

We bring the joy of food to life

Food is a joyous occasion. Whether sharing a meal with friends or cooking up a delicious meal for the family, food memories linger on the tastebuds. And the right ingredients have the power to elevate everyday meals into unforgettable food experiences.

We help you discover new flavours to share with your consumers, encourage them to cook and experience the joy of quality, well-seasoned food, and create innovative new product lines to drive your business forwards.

And we bring the joy of food to life sustainably too, doing the right thing at the heart of every decision we make.

  • What we do

    The BART Ingredients Company creates delicious ingredients for food retailers and brands across the UK. We specialise in herbs, spices, seasonings, home baking, sauces, and pastes.

    With extensive experience sourcing products from across the globe, we have over 500 products available to both brand and private label customers, and are continually expanding our range to meet the needs of our customers.

  • A story of taste

    Our story begins in true Bristol fashion. Jo and Reg Bartlam began selling herbs and spices from their garage in Bedminster to their own community, sharing favourite flavours with friends and neighbours. Over time, word got round about this tasty operation. Hear the full story here.

  • Bristol born

    A love for our home city runs deep at The BART Ingredients Company. Because being a Bristol-business isn’t just about location, it’s about upholding that unique Bristol spirit – the warmth and community-mindedness. The care we have for the people around us.

  • Food worth savouring, a planet worth saving

    Doing the right thing is important to us. That’s why we embed sustainable practices into everything we do – it wouldn’t occur to us to operate in another way. We take care of each and every person we work with, and continually look for ways to reduce our environmental impact.
