What information does the global blackcurrant production table contain?
Each year in June, we ask representatives from all blackcurrant growing countries about their share of production:
How much hectares of blackcurrant plantations in each country?
What are the conditions for blackcurrant growers?
How much blackcurrants have been harvested the year before?
Which yield do they expect for the current year?
What is the share of organically produced blackcurrants?
Anyone can view historical data, i.e. until the current year:

Please note that we review the estimates constantly. Of course, they depend on growing and harvest conditions in various countries. The IBA collates this information in good faith. We publish estimates which our members or representatives from non-member country grower groups share with us. Thus, the IBA is not responsible for the absolute accuracy of the data.
Note that Russia is a major blackcurrant producer, although we do not have clear information on Russia’s production volumes. Nevertheless, we know that Russia consumes its own crop domestically. Russia also imports blackcurrants from other countries. The IBA is endeavouring to get Russian production estimates to add to the information database.
