It's hard to resist that little twig dripping with gleaming red berries. This bright red berry is a real charmer on the table. Do you appreciate a hint of sharpness in the flavour of a berry? Then the redcurrant is ideal for you. Thanks to their decorative appearance, EAT ME redcurrants are also understandably popular with chefs in the hospitality industry.

Draping a few redcurrants on the top is enough to transform a dish into a true eye catcher. And did you know that redcurrants contain a vitamin you don't find in every kind of fruit, vitamin K? Vitamin K helps the blood clot normally and keeps your bones strong.

Recipes with redcurrants

The redcurrant can be left intact to use as a garnish. A string of these shiny berries makes all the difference to a dessert or cake. They are also a popular ingredient in sauces or jam. Making your own jam is not difficult, and the results will be irresistible. And a less obvious but incredibly tasty use: couscous with redcurrants.


Rinse redcurrants before use. That's all it takes for an enjoyable snack. Did you know that redcurrants are also great for cooking and baking?

Redcurrants are a source of a less common but important vitamin: K. This vitamin helps the blood clot and maintains strong bones. Redcurrants are also a source of potassium, which contributes to maintaining blood pressure and is beneficial for the muscles and nervous system.

Where do redcurrants come from?

The redcurrants with the EAT ME label you see in the shops come from different parts of the world. Growers can be found in the Netherlands, but also in the south of Europe or in South America. Which is handy, as they can be enjoyed all year round.

How sustainable are redcurrants?

Why use plastic packaging when cardboard can do the job? Cardboard provides the same protection the fruits need, but the material can be recycled. That's why we supply redcurrants in a cardboard shaker punnet. Just as sturdy, much more sustainable. And it not only reduces plastic use, but also CO2 emissions. The dimensions of the punnet means that 65% more fit on one pallet.
