Germany: Herbs moving into focus - high prices November to February
Roberto Argentieri of Salvatore Ferrauto GmbH
The diversity of herbs is large, the wholesale trader continues. Among the Italian classics are of course basil and oregano. But other spices are also garnering increasing attention. “mint, coriander, rosemary, sage and thyme are also very popular among our customers,” says Argentieri.
“One needs to be careful with basil”
Salvatore Ferrauto GmbH from Munich refers to the south of Italy for its fresh herbs. “Our complete assortment of fresh herbs comes from over there,” Argentieri explains. Growing conditions for our herbs are almost ideal near Bari and on the island of Sicily. Especially for the delicate basil plant, an optimal climate is essential. “We get our basil from our partners in Sicily,” Roberto Argentieri explains. “One has to be careful with basil. It is very sensitive, and the climate for the plant is optimal in Sicily.”
Prices have gone up
Altogether, the increased demand for the spicy and aromatic plants has had its effect on the price. “Especially this year, we are noticing a clear price increase,” says the wholesale trader. Argentieri sees the reason for the price increase in the fact that other export countries such as Egypt and Kenya have clearly increased their prices this year.
Two price levels
The wholesale trader reports that looking over the entire year, there is a varying high price level. “Herbs are most expensive from November until February,” says Argentieri. “Prices are at their highest level in this period. After, prices drop back down to a lower level. “
