The Burger Sampler Seasonings & Recipe Card
To provide you with the freshest, most flavorful ingredients (and help dismantle centuries of systemic injustice within the spice trade), Occo taps into the transparent, sustainable supply chains of small-scale spice merchants that have spent years building relationships at the farm level.
Despite the myth that spices are good for years, ground spices actually lose flavor within 3-6 months. Oxygen, light, heat, and humidity (common occurrences in a kitchen) cause the essential oils in spice to oxidize and decay. Without these aptly-named oils, spices lose their color, aroma, and flavor.
Occo spices are portioned into half-teaspoon pods and sealed for airtight freshness using a modified atmosphere packaging technique. Without oxygen, decay is slowed down significantly, and shelf life is dramatically extended.
Occo spice pods are made from aluminum, the most recycled and most recyclable material on the planet. (75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today!) The rest of the spice card is made from paperboard which is easily recycled with paper and cardboard.
Nuanced flavor and unfussy recipes. These burgers are unexpected cookout hits with deep, complex flavors that render condiments optional.
This 4-card deck is insanely easy to shop for and even easier to eat. Pick your protein, grab a bun (or not, if that's your thing), and you're set. We included suggested garnishes for each burger, but they're truly optional - every 'burg can stand on its own two flavorful feet.

Two co-workers-turned-friends-turned-co-founders who were so obsessed with the idea of getting just enough spices that they designed a spice pod and set up a factory.
In the same way a pinch of spice can transform a meal, Occo's hope is that tiny portions can help transform the food industry.
40% of all food sold in the U.S. is ultimately wasted—and the founders were fed up. Occo allows you to buy just what you need and use it all before it can go bad, thereby conserving resources and reducing the carbon emissions associated with growing and transporting ingredients that end up in the trash.
