Blackcurrant press releases from all over the world

Since the creation of the IBA in 2008, we have collected articles from many journalists and about various subjects related to blackcurrants. Many of these blackcurrant press releases are related to the numerous health benefits of blackcurrants. Others talk about economic or agronomic questions.

You can read the articles we collected by searching in the list below. The most recent blackcurrant press releases are on top of the list.

Please be aware that you may find articles in any language – mainly the languages from the blackcurrant growing countries in Europe. Some articles have been translated with an online translator, and translations may not be of the best quality. 

Please note that we do not systematically provide translations into English.

Many videos are available with any kind of information on blackcurrants. Although they are not “real” blackcurrant press releases, you may like to see some films starring our favourite little berry.
