Ian Hemphill is the younger son of John and Rosemary Hemphill, who pioneered Australia's love of herbs and spices in the 1950's. Ian worked with his parents for many years, managed a spice company in Singapore and was a senior manager for a multinational food company in Australia.

In 1997 Ian and his wife Liz opened a specialty spice shop in Sydney, which bears the nickname Ian has had since school days.....Herbie's. Herbie's Spices was founded to fill a need in the community of cooks and food lovers who wanted to access hard-to-find herbs and spices.
