Our History

Our History

Formed in 1993, Barataria Spice Company was owned and operated by Mike Hymel for over 25 years. In 2019, he decided to pass the business down to me, Sabrina Hymel Bethurum, and my husband, Greg Bethurum, keeping it in the family.

Today, we operate as Cypress Spice Company.


Our Purpose

(As Dad Puts It)

“Our purpose is to provide the highest quality spice blend mixes for the fairest possible price. We strive to maintain a high degree of service by providing our customers with whatever amount of product which suits their needs, whenever and wherever they need it. Our aim is to promote Louisiana as a quality state, where quality products and services originate.”
