Laurel (Bay) Leaves is a Mediterranean plant. It is seen all the line along Mediterranean Sea. It is collected and gathered by villagers from the nature which is growing totally wildly. No farming for this item is traced until now. This material can be used as a culinary herb also as ornamental purposes. It is one of the main ingredients of Curry . Lately we have started also to dehydrate the fresh leaves in our own machinery .In this case the bright green colour is retained.
We are preparing 3 different qualities . Whole leaves are sold as Hand Picked Selected quality, can be sized upon request (3-7cm etc). Also Semi Selected quality, which has around 10% whole leaves and rest broken leaves inside. The last one is for industrial purpose Cut Laurel Leaves. Those are leaves cut by machine to size requested (2*2mm / 5*8mm etc). According to Exporter Union Statistics Turkey is exporting around 4600 tones a year to whole world.
