Morton Gothelf, the founder of Morton & Bassett Spices, has always been a great cook and loves to entertain friends. He was passionate about finding just the right ingredients to create the perfect combination of flavors. In searching for superior ingredients, he found that the best quality spices were difficult to obtain in a typical grocery or gourmet store.
Morton began to find sources for the best spices and then started Morton & Bassett Spices in 1986, hoping to fill this niche. The combination of great ingredients, good value and clear bottles that showcased the product was a hit.
Since 1986 the business has grown quickly thanks to the growing numbers of loyal Morton & Bassett customers.
