Equagold was founded on sourcing vanilla pods from Papua New Guinea, buying direct from the villagers in the Highlands and supporting their communities. This is where the name Equa-gold was founded. Our vanilla is grown in a narrow band either side of the equator and sometimes referred to as “black gold”. So our name simply means Equator Gold. You can now buy these A-Grade pods whole or try our world class vanilla extracts, pastes, sugars and syrups. All made in New Zealand to very discerning standards.
