EU: Increasing demand for samphire and herbs in small packaging

Europe Retail Packing has a wide assortment of herbs straight from the source. One of these products is salicornia (samphire). At this moment the samphire from Dutch and French sources is finished and so the import from Israel begins.

"There has been much more demand for Israeli samphire because it lasts longer and has a thinner stalk. We can meet this demand because more was planted in Israel. Along with the fact that more was planted, Europe Retail Packing has also established three new growers. These growers have all been certified so they meet all requirements," explained Raymond van der Burgh.

In addition to the increasing demand for samphire, there is more request for packaged herbs. "Along with the kilo packaging we also offer smaller packages in differing weights. We noticed here too that there is increasing demand," explained Raymond. The entire assortment of herbs is delivered year round from countries such as Israel and Kenya, and in the summer season the Netherlands. The smaller packages are perfectly suitable for restaurants and supermarkets. Consumers don't have to buy more than they can use at any time."
