Exporting coriander seeds to Europe
The growing popularity of Asian, North African and Middle Eastern cuisines, including spice mixes, sauces and condiments, like curry sauces, drive the demand for coriander seeds in Europe. Coriander seeds are also used in the production of essential oils, oleoresins and as a flavouring agent in alcoholic drinks, such as gin. Large importing and consuming markets, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, France, and Austria offer opportunities for new developing country suppliers. Offering high-quality, safe and sustainable products can provide a competitive advantage. New suppliers must be able to compete with offers from Russia, India, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Morocco and emerging suppliers in Spain, Romania, and Argentina.
