    We are ERICH TRAPP GmbH & Co. KG, a Company located in Germany and are mostly interested in importing fresh horseradish roots from the USA for our own production. Please be so kind sending us information where we may find either farmers or companies interested in exporting fresh horseradish. Thank you in advance and best regards,
