BioAlb is an Albanian initiative to promote our natural wild-growing plants. The collection of aromatic and medicinal herbs is more concentrated in the regions of Malesi e Madhe, Shkoder, Skrapar, Elbasan, Korce, Berat, Permet, and Durres.
The northern part of the country is well known for production and quality of sage, while central and southern part of the country is specialized in production of qualitative oregano and thyme. Usually it is the families living in the rural areas which collect the aromatic and medicinal herbs, which are later purchased and collected by approximately 70-80 regional collectors all around the country.
During these last ten years, with increasing demand for Albanian products in international markets, the sector has grown both in size and quality. Albanian companies, suppliers of these products to international markets have strengthened their position in international markets, have gained experience and have created a strong network of connections.
