    This causes the barberry to change color and increase the risk of pests and mold.
  2. If you pour barberries directly into the carton, the probability of pouring barberry from the side of the carton during handling is high. On the other hand, customs and health of some countries, especially in Europe, do not consider direct contact of agricultural products with cartons from a health perspective.
  3. The type of fabric packaging should not be thick because it prevents air from passing through and increases the possibility of color change. For this reason, a fabric with a suitable thickness should use.
