Vostizza Currants flavour is so special that they are a region protected species! Since 1993 the European Union certified Vostizza Currants as a product of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO No. 1549/98), which means they currants outside the desginated production area are not allowed to be called Vostizza. Only Currants grown and processed in the Aeghion region can be called Vostizza, once they are certified by the European Union. The conditions of the Aeghion mountain region and soil is what leads to the amazing sweetness and texture of the currants. Unlike most dry fruits, these currants have zero additives, no oil, sugar or any preservative. Eat this currants directly as a snack, or use in cakes, muffins, cereals. We love eating them with good quality cheese and cured meats too.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
