10:30 – 11:30 Master Class – Spice it Up Cooking Show  (Main Hall)

Join us for a master class on the use of Caribbean sauces and condiments and learn how to effectively include authentic Caribbean products in your daily cooking.

The value of the global condiment market is expected to rise to €20.29 billion by 2020, with urbanisation, healthy lifestyle trends, and growing interest in new flavours increasing the demand for exotic sauces in Europe.

There is a noticeable increase in imports of spices and seasonings from developing countries to Europe (97% of the total import volume), which has been fueled by the European interest in healthy living. Furthermore, European imports of spices and herbs from developing countries have grown significantly in recent years, by 6.6% annually between 2013 and 2017 and the global spices market is expected to grow by 5.1% between 2017 and 2021 (as reported in https://www.cbi.eu/market-information/spices-herbs/trends).

Some of the spices of interest include ginger, cloves, turmeric, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.  This therefore presents a great opportunity for Caribbean brands to increase their export and growth potential.
