How the spice trade changed the world
In the early days, the spice trade was the world’s biggest industry; it established and destroyed empires, led to the discovery of new continents and in many ways helped lay the foundation for the modern world. It was its rarity that held up its value, making it one of the most precious commodities of its time.
Today, spice trade is still a key industry, mostly due to a vast use throughout the world. Demand is consistently high, allowing the commodity to maintain its notable position in the market. DMCC foresees the possibilities this trade can bring by making spices more accessible to the world.
