The Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries (CBI) invites you for a new Market Intelligence webinar. This webinar focuses on the spices and herbs sector.

  • The increasing size of the European food processing industry;
  • the popularity of international cuisine; and

all influence the demand for dried chillies in Europe.

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

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

We will also update you on the most recent legal and buyer requirements, popular chilli varieties and sustainability developments. We will share insights into what is happening with leading competitors such as China, Spain and India. We will also look at what is happening with new suppliers such as Peru, Thailand, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Zambia and Uganda.
