India is the world’s largest exporter of gherkins, shipping approximately 200,000 metric tonnes, which accounts for 20% of total global gherkin exports. Mostly grown in the 3 southern states of India – Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh & Tamil Nadu, the climatic and soil conditions are favourable for two harvesting seasons, allowing for the distinct advantage of processing the produce for 10 months each year.
Global Green Company processes more than 35,000 tonnes of gherkins from its two facilities in India. With multi-product packing operations at both facilities and with the capability for both fresh and processed packs, we produce whole and cut produce in retail packs (glass jars and PET), foodservice packs (pouch and tins) and industrial packs (drums and pails).
In Europe gherkin growing areas stretch from Southern Germany through Hungary to Poland and Romania. Hungary produces around 35,000 metric tons of gherkins annually, which is among the highest in this region. Our multi product packing facility at Dunakiliti processes more than 7000 metric tons (wholes and cut) in retail (glass jar & PET) and foodservice (tins) packs.
