About Us

Often coined “The eighth continent”, Madagascar provides a matchless environment for its spices to thrive, which subsequently produces unique flavors and aromas. Headquartered on Madagascar’s fertile east coast, MC Ingredients is in close proximity to where the spices are grown and have generated a robust supply chain through its nearly 10 years of existence. Our commitment? To shorten the supply chain by facilitating closer connections among customers and suppliers.”

Our approach

MC Ingredients strives to generate further momentum and synergies with existing and growing spice suppliers in Madagascar. Rather than seeking to create brand-new supply chains and start from ground zero, MC Ingredients assesses and identifies suppliers to assist, improve, and further develop existing supply chains by providing financial, managerial, logistic, and product quality support.

This approach allows for MC Ingredients to create alliances and bonds with proven existing suppliers rather than becoming their competitor, which often create unwanted discord. Through these synergies, MC Ingredients’ network grows exponentially through the accumulation of each supplier’s particular network. This in term offers our customer access to more expansive, robust, and proven supply chains. All efforts are with the goal to shorten the supply chain of demand and supply.

Our story

After serving as a US Peace Corps volunteer in Madagascar in 2006-2007, Madagascar Consulting was created in 2009 by an American with the initial aim to help advise and facilitate business for anglophones in Madagascar. The founder then crossed paths with a host country national with extensive knowledge and experience in agricultural products, while also possessing a similar business educational background.

After much conversation and brainstorming in 2013, they decided to join forces in 2014 and began to focus on global agricultural commodity trade emphasizing quality, service, and integrity. To better encompass all its activities, Madagascar Consulting (MC) was transformed into MC Ingredients.
