Welcome to the official website of the International Blackcurrant Association!

Let us introduce ourselves:

We are an association of growers, processors and experts in all aspects (agronomy, health, nutrition) of the best berry for life – the blackcurrant.

As such, we work on the development of positive relationships between the growers in all the blackcurrant growing countries in the world. This goes through the exchange of information and sharing experiences, as well as regular meetings in working groups and conferences for the best communication possible. Our objective is also to bring growers, agronomists and processors together for good and longlasting partnerships with a sustainable production.

Furthermore, together with researchers in the field of nutrition, we pursue the promotion of the blackcurrant as the best and certainly the most competitive superfruit in the world.

Finally, we help to establish relationships between all players in the market, without any commercial activity as an association.

Bringing people together is our objective!
