Not only Russia, but also countries such as Ukraine and Kazakhstan buy significant quantities of Iranian puffy barberry.
Puffy barberry mostly exports and sells to Russia for foodstuffs uses.

Packaging for Exporting Barberry to Russia

Barberry Export Packaging

By the end of 2018, most barberry exports were in a simple, routine package.
The packaging was such that the barberry producer poured it directly into cartons weighing between 8 and 12 kg.
This type of packaging is still common but not suitable for export. (Why?):

  • Direct contact of the product with the inner surface of the carton is outside the export standard.
    In fact, it should be a layer that prevents the product from being directly in connect to the packaging carton. In the beginning, inexperienced exporters used plastic bags for years.
    Nylon and plastic that enclose barberry are the main cause of barberry mold and mildew.
  • If the cartons tear up, the product will spill out, so it is not suitable for moving at all.
  • Cartons easily absorb moisture inside and out, and this can be a problem on sea routes.

Paper sheets mainly uses to solve the above problems.
Placing a layer of paper between the product and the carton on different sides may prevent a direct connection, but:

  1. It is still possible that the product spills out.
  2. The problem of high moisture on sea routes has not yet been resolved.
  3. Barberry gives back the oil it absorbs during processing to the paper, and the papers would be greasy and won’t look good at all.

To solve the above problem, Artin factory uses a special type of fabric after several years of export experience.
These special cloth bags, in addition to maintaining the quality of the product due to the proper and logical transfer of moisture, cause the product not to spill out of the carton, and also greatly enhances the appearance of the packaging. Also, the fabric not only does not mold the product, but also increases the durability of the product, unlike plastic.

Obviously, in the process of exporting barberry to Russia, you will have many questions about puffy barberries, pomegranate-type or any other type of this product.
Artin’s sales and export managers are ready to provide services and advice in this regard.
