The pleasant scent of garam masala is paired with McCormick’s financial
results in the 2011 annual report. Over the years, investors have been
led to McCormick’s annual report, by following the smell of nutmeg,
cardamom, and cinnamon among others. McCormick produces the only scented
annual report and has been doing so for more than 30 years.
Garam masala is a sweet aromatic spice blend that brings a warm exotic
flavor and has been called the “heart” of Indian cuisine. The
ingredients vary from region to region, but each include a blend of
coriander, black pepper, cumin, cardamom and cinnamon. The mix is used
in cooking or as a finishing touch in a curry or other Indian dish.
India is one of the highest per capita spice consumption nations –
estimated at five times the United States. In 2010 and 2011, McCormick
expanded into this important market with two joint ventures.
Schmitz Press applied the scent of garam masala after the printing of
the annual report was completed. A glaze, the color and consistency of
honey, contains the scent and is rolled over a select number of pages
after the ink dries.

report details a financial performance that met or exceeded McCormick’s
