Currants are a concentrated source of vitamins, electrolytes and minerals. They are also packed with health-benefiting anti-oxidants and rich in fibre. A portion counts as one of your 5 a day.
Our main source of Currants is Greece. Greece is by far the largest producer of Currants in the World, whilst the UK is the largest export market.
Vostizza Currants are grown and produced only on the hills & mountains, surrounding Aeghion. Only Currants grown and processed in the Aeghion region can be called Vostizza and are certified by the European Union Protected Designation of Origin (PDO No. 1549/98). The microclimate of the region and rich soil contribute to the distinctive texture and flavour, of Vostizza.
Gulf Currants are grown in the area around the Corinth Canal and this is also a “Closed” region. Currants produced in other areas of the Peloponnese, including Kalamata, Pirgos and Amalias are classed as “Provincial” grade.
Whilst Greece remains the dominant source of Currants, we can also offer Currants from South Africa and the USA (California).
