Coriander seed is grown by farmers as part of a traditional rotation crop and is traded in vast quantities throughout the world.
The food trade is the biggest user of coriander as it makes up at least 30% of all curry powders. It is also used by the majority of all Gins around the world as the second most important botanical.
Beacon Commodities’ vast experience in the food and botanical trade has allowed them to build up excellent contacts with farmers across the various origins including Morocco, Eastern Europe, Russia and India. Beacon Commodities inspect countless lots of coriander seed every year making calculated and informed decisions on which lots the Gin Industry will favour. Beacon Commodities has access to seed from around the world but will normally stock, Bulgarian (please see our Newsletter, Issue 1 for further details on Bulgaria), Russian and Moroccan seed at any one time with other origins at more random intervals.
