Thai food was love at first sight for Onno Stienen. Onno, founder and owner of ONOFF SPICES, which exports organic products from Thailand to the Netherlands and other European countries, had very different plans. Since he was a boy, he wanted to know everything about computers and went to a Higher Technical Institution to lay the foundation for this. A part-time job in a café aroused his interest in food. He obtained a cooking certificate and this gave him a really good taste. At a private cooking course in Thailand, Onno learned the tricks of the trade from a Thai chef. Back in the Netherlands, he worked in IT and showed people what Thai food should taste like, but because he noticed it’s not easy to get authentic Thai products in the Netherlands, ONOFF SPICES was the next logical step for him.
ONOFF SPICES makes natural and organic ready-to-serve Thai soups, curry pastes and stir-fry sauces for European connoisseurs. The production is sustainable, with consideration for nature. And social, with attention to the working conditions and income of the farmers in Isan, north-east Thailand, who grow peppers, kaffir lime leaves, garlic, coriander and more for ONOFF SPICES. These agricultural products contain no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. ONOFF SPICES does not compromise on flavor; it is genuinely Thai. And genuinely tasty. All soups, curries and stir-fry sauces are formulated in such a way that anyone can prepare a Thai dish in no time.
