It lacks governance, plantations are often neglected, research in spice agro-technology is minimal, plantation workers are among the poorest people on earth, adulteration of spice is prolific, and in some areas regulations and standards are pretty much ignored.

TSJ is represented by subscribers in 2007 cities located in 142 countries throughout the world, and is published in more than 80 languages selectable from a tab in the upper left corner of your screen.
