Advance Consulting has developed the Business Opportunity Report: Spices sector in Ethiopia. The report reflects the major trends in the spices sector in the world, Europe, and Africa and specifically the trends and business opportunities in Ethiopia. It has been developed on behalf of the Ethiopia Netherland trade for Agricultural Growth (ENTAG) programme and the Royal Dutch Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


The report gives an overview of global trends of the spices sector and takes a deep dive into the characteristics and potential of the European import market. Subsequently, the report analyses business opportunities and challenges related to the Ethiopian export market and sets out the potential of seven spices produced in the country: turmeric, chili, ginger, black pepper, black cumin seeds, coriander seeds, black cardamom. The report also looks at the stakeholders’ landscape and gives a summary of the role of the government, development partners, and farmer organizations in the development of the sector. The report identifies the spices sector as a sector with high potential for Ethiopian exports and European importers and investors.
