About SpringThyme

Based in the northwest of the UK, the company operates from a purpose-designed factory opened in 2005. The primary focus of the company is the supply of technical ingredients based on the process of infusion for the UK food industry, but with a growing international business in Continental Europe and North America.

We develop, manufacture and supply a comprehensive range of Infused Oils and Fats to the food industry. Our business is focused on supplying other food producers with the majority of our products going to prepared food manufacturers and the remainder to bottling companies for private label and branded oil ranges.

Infused Oils are high quality ingredients made by combining premium quality oils with fresh herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables. We process these raw materials in a unique manufacturing system designed and developed completely in-house by SpringThyme for the express purpose of Infused Oil production. SpringThyme goes to great lengths to ensure its products are 100% natural with zero additives.

We take great pride in providing a first class service to all our customers - existing and new – and endeavour to form long-lasting and strong working relationships with both customers and suppliers.
