Cloves for export and import

Product description Cloves for export and import are the unopened flower buds of the evergreen tree Eugenia caryophyllus in the family Myrtaceae. The tree is native to the Moluccas, which are part of egypt. Nowadays, however, cloves are also grown in many other tropical countries. Cloves must be dried before they are stored and sold for market. Cloves are used in cooking (desserts, bakery products, meat, fish, red cabbage, mulled wine) and in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. They are also used to produce clove oil, the main constituent of which is eugenol. Eugenol is used, among other things, to perfume soaps, as a dental anaesthetic and as an additive in dental filling material. The main focus of this study is on the clove bud. The stems and clove fruit are not widely consumed in Europe. The statistical data in this document are based on Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes. The CN uses Harmonised System (HS) codes to classify products. HS Code Description 09071000 Cloves for export and import, whole fruit, Cloves for export and import and stems, neither crushed nor ground 09072000 Cloves for export and import , whole fruit, cloves and stems, crushed or ground Product specification Quality Product quality is a key issue for buyers in Europe and also includes food safety issues. The European Spice Association (ESA) has published the Quality Minima Document, which is vital for the national spice associations affiliated with the ESA and therefore for most key players in Europe. It specifies the legal European requirements as well as the terms of delivery between buyer and seller that are not defined in legislation. It contains the chemical and physical parameters that determine the minimum quality requirements for cloves: Ash (max.) Acid insol. ash (max.) Moisture (max.) Volatile oil (min.) 7.0% 0.5% 12% 12 ml/100gr High-quality cloves should be oil-rich, whole, unbroken and without stalks, and must not contain any woody, brittle cloves. They should be reddish-brown to brown in colour and the head should be light brown and closed. Cloves are graded in accordance with the relevant national standard of the country of production. In addition, ISO standard 2254-2004 provides some general guidelines on the grading, handling and packing of whole and ground cloves. Labelling Incorrect labelling is a major source of frustration for European buyers. You must therefore take care to label your product properly. See our study on value-added spices and herbs in Europe for information on consumer packaging requirements. The labelling of bulk products should include the following information: The name of the product Details of the manufacturer (name and address) Batch number Date of manufacture Product grade Producing country Harvest date (month-year) Net weight Any information that exporting and importing countries may require: bar, producer and/or packager code, any extra information that can be used to trace the product back to its origin. Packaging: Whole cloves must be packed in new, clean, sound and dry bags made of jute, cloth laminated with polyethylene or polypropylene, or high-density polyethylene bags or pouches. It is essential that the cloves are completely dry before they are stored. Clove powder can be packed in new, clean, sound and dry containers made of glass, tin or aluminium, or in pouches made of laminated, metallised, multi-layered food-grade plastic material. The containers should be free from insect infestation, fungal contamination, undesirable or bad smells and substances that may damage the contents.
