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!

International Blackcurrant Conference in Lviv

Due to growing concern and continuous spread of the Coronavirus, we have decided to cancel the international conference 2020 in Ukraine.


The conference in June 2020 is cancelled, but the event will take place as planned in Lviv, Ukraine, in 2021.

Together with the Ukrainian organizers, we have therefore decided to keep the next international blackcurrant conference as close as possible to what had initially been planned.

We are now happy to announce that we will meet from

1st to 4th June 2021.

We hope to meet you all there in good health, as usual. May this crisis not impact your health, families and businesses too heavily. Stay safe!
