Who are the Blackcurrant Foundation

We are not just growers, we are experts who have perfected the art of growing blackcurrants, implementing a complicated methodology and responding to the consumers’ growing demands for environmental conscientiousness and responsible husbandry.

We now grow around 2,000 hectares of blackcurrants in the British Isles, producing a crop of over 13,000 tonnes every year.

Bred especially for their deep purple colour which indicates a high level of anthocyanins - important disease-fighting antioxidants - British blackcurrants are a deliciously healthy addition to recipes. The British Blackcurrant Foundation has been established by British growers to raise widespread awareness of the mini superfruit hero and encourage people to take full advantage.
