Cinnamon is a spice of life.  We use this delightful spice in our foods and our cooking and our lives.

Today many of us see the health benefits of cinnamon, a factor driving its popularity.

And like any spice, there are many different flavors and textures of cinnamon.  It comes from China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and other countries.

We especially enjoy korintje cinnamon from Indonesia.

“Sweet and mellow, Korintje cinnamon has the flavor and aroma we all remember from childhood,” according to Penzeys Spices.  “We love Korintje cinnamon for sprinkling—on hot cereal, raisin toast, pancakes and waffles, oatmeal, cream of wheat, sugar cookies, fresh fruit, and for blending with other spices for baking.”

According to Forbes, Indonesia’s cinnamon trade is around $100 million annually, producing approximately 50,000 tons per year of this amazing spice.*

Noticing the outstanding impact cinnamon has on trade, Indonesian factories jumped on the opportunity and created co-ops that connected farmers to consumers and moved the needle for the country.
Some of the most famous food chains out there all use Indonesia’s exquisite cinnamon!

Cinnabon is one of the iconic names that uses Makara® Cinnamon from Indonesia. Every time you take a bite of a juicy, luscious cinnamon roll, close your eyes and travel for a moment to the far eastern canopies of the tropical forests of Indonesia. You indulge your taste buds and, at the same time, participate in growing the economy of a rising country!

Cinnamon thus becomes a symbol of the global economy—the joy, potential, and excitement of sharing the great things in life worldwide.
