    What is unique to Excalibur Seasonings manufacturing process?

    Their SQF Level 3 certification and the level of consistency, quality, and care that gets put into producing each and every product.

    What is the Excalibur Seasoning manufacturing process like?

    Everything that Excalibur Seasoning produces is subject to their SQF Level 3 certification. All inputs and outputs are lot coded, AND each batch and lot is compared to the previous batch and lot to check for consistency, taste, and visual accuracy so that is always exactly the same. Consistency, taste, and quality is of the utmost importance in their manufacturing.

    What is happening with Excalibur Seasoning’s latest expansion?

    One of the biggest reasons that Excalibur Seasoning decided to expand was to expand their storage capabilities.

    What is Excalibur Seasoning’s lead time on orders?

    7 days. Each order is produced and manufactured as they are placed. Seasonings don’t simply get pulled off of a shelf, but they are all made-to-order. This is changing slightly on some of their fastest selling items because of their latest expansion, and certain SKUs will have some pre-made seasonings held in stock so that some orders and seasonings can receive next day shipment.

    How many items will be added to Excalibur’s “Quick Ship” items?

    100+ SKUs will be available for next day shipment instead of the typical 7 business day lead time.

    When will the new facility be ready?

    By the end of October 2016, the new facility should be done, and the beginning of 2017 inventory should be built up and everything fully operational.
