Europe

Although Europe is not a spice continent itself, it has occupied a key position in the global spice trade for centuries. The colonial powers - the Netherlands and Great Britain, Spain and Portugal - have accumulated great wealth through the trade in spices from distant, tropical areas. Italy also benefited from this, with Venice at the heart of the spice trade in the 15th century.

Spain, Italy, France and Hungary are four European countries with a rich tradition of growing chili peppers, the condiment of the New World. There is a trend going on to grow other exotic spices in Europe; vanilla is a recent example of this. Is that a good development or not?

In Poland, a tradition is turned into a business model with the wild harvest of juniper. A knife that cuts both ways: preserving traditions, preserving and maintaining juniper and a tasteful, honest product. A discovery!
