Puffy-shape barberry (POFAKI Zereshk) and pomegranate-seed-shape barberry (ANARI Zereshk) are among the best products of the Artin company.
Pomegranate-seed-shape barberry and puffy-shape type come to the market in different time periods of the year.

The Artin Anari Zereshk is available in the market approximately 45 days after the barberry harvest season.
In other words, it can be said that ANARI barberries have been sold in the market since the end of November.

The Artin POFAKI Zereshk has a longer drying process.
It takes about 3 to 4 months for Puffy-shape barberry to be ready for the market.
Usually, puffy barberry, if the temperature and humidity of the environment are balanced, can be distributed in the market from March.

Each type of barberry has its own market.
The appearance and special characteristics of each of the ANARI and POFAKI Iranian Zereshk cause their applications to be different.
In the Artin barberry company, wholesale of barberry varieties are doing all year round. It means that both varieties are available in the Artin company during the year.

In addition, special packages are using to sell barberry for export, which we will discuss below.

Importing Artin ANARI Zereshk from Iran

Iranian ANARI Berberis Vulgaris fruit is exporting from Iran to certain countries.
European and Canadian markets are more interested in Iranian puffy barberry.
But the main destinations for exporting/importing high-quality pomegranate-seed barberry are the following countries:

Russia – Turkey – Ukraine – Kazakhstan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India – Iraq

Of course, each of these markets likes different qualities with different packaging.
Of course, this also depends on the type of consumption and application.

In Turkey, for example, first-class ANARI barberry with stylish packaging uses to produce delicious sweets and Lokum.
But in the same market, weaker ANARI barberry is also using to produce beverages.

One of the packages for barberry in bulk, which was used for the first time in the Artin collection, is barberry cloth (fabric) packaging.
Since barberry is in plastic and the temperature or humidity of the environment rises, it changes color quickly.
On the other hand, the possibility of mold or the spread of insects and butterflies in the load increases.
In this regard, in the Artin barberry factory, after a long period of research in this field, fabric-packaging is in use.

Of course, not every type of fabric can be in use to pack barberry.
This type of packaging allows the barberry to communicate with the environment.
Which increases the shelf life of the product in the long run.

Since barberry is not exporting in very large quantities, it often transports to the destination country along with other products.
Most barberry orders are between 5 to 10 tons per party.
The important point is that this product should place along with products that are keeping in the same temperature conditions.
In other words, in sea shipments or in hot seasons, barberry should be in containers with a temperature of zero to +4 degrees.
This means that if another product is along with barberry, it must be durable in this condition.

The daily price of barberry depends on various parameters, the most important of which is the type of barberry.
Pomegranate-seed-shape (ANARI) barberry is cheaper than puffy-shape (POFAKI) barberry.
This is due to the darker color and high crushing rate of ANARI barberry.
These characteristics are due to the type and method of drying ANARI Zereshk under direct sunlight.
