Webinar: Black pepper export opportunities in Europe

Black Pepper

Join us to find out more about the export potential of black pepper on the European market. This webinar is for all businesses, from starters to experienced exporters. We will be sharing important information and steps you should consider to be successful.

Black pepper in Europe

Black pepper is the most traded spice in the world. The demand in Europe is stable. But supply is challenging due to harvest and price fluctuations in the main supplying countries. Also, due to a lack of containers, ocean freight rates rose to historically high levels.

During this webinar, we will take a closer look at attractive markets such as:

  • Germany;
  • The United Kingdom;
  • France;
  • The Netherlands;
  • Poland; and
  • Spain

We will also update you on the most recent legal and buyer requirements. Sustainable sourcing of black pepper is a major topic right now in the European market.

We will share insights into what is happening with leading suppliers such as Vietnam, Brazil, Indonesia and India. And we will look at what is happening with new competitors such as Cambodia, Ecuador and Tanzania.
