Import of barberry have grown somewhat since the year 2015. Since then we have seen an increase in imports each year.
First of all, Iranian Dried Barberry was seen in Iranian, Afghani, and Arabian shops and restaurants.
As barberries become more popular, we see a growing market for this product in Canada, especially in Toronto and Vancouver.

Iran produces barberry varieties, which we will describe in detail below.
If you want to import barberry to Canada, You need to know more about Iranian Zereshk.

Iranian Dried Barberries Variety

Iranian Red Barberry on the tree is one type; Its processing and drying procedure is different and because of these drying methods, we have different barberry varieties.
The most important varieties of barberry known in the market are:

  • Anari barberry
  • Pistachio barberry

Other types are also producing, but not very well known in Canada’s markets.

Dried Barberry Types

The difference between these varieties of barberry is in its color, taste, and appearance.
In other words, ANARI barberry has a darker red color than POFAKI type. Anari Iranian Zereshk has a deeper taste as well.
Drug and beverage companies often use Anari berries to produce their products.
Also, If you are using berberis Vulgaris (barberry) to produce delicious Jams and Juices, we advise you to import ANARI barberry to Canada markets.
But if you are buying these products to do packaging and sell in the shelves of shops, you’d better to buy Pofaki barberry.

Barberry Quality Detection Parameters:

Barberry Quality

There are various appearance parameters to determine the quality of barberry. The most important of which is the color of barberry and its uniformity.
But some features cannot be explored at first glance. For this reason, a sample of Barberry load will send to the food labs approved by the Food and Drug Administration to comply with standards. This step should be done in exporter country (Iran).

The most important physicochemical parameters to measure on barberry are:

  • Ash percentage
  • The amount of external material (tail, leaf, stone, etc.)
  • Amount of humidity (Moisture)
  • Blight

For importing barberry to some countries, the destination customs need a health certificate.
To obtain a health certificate in the exporter country (Iran), the barberry load must be sampled by the Food and Drug Administration representative (In Iran) and the load will be sealed until the results are prepared.

This above mentioned step and certificate is necessary to import barberry to Canada.

In addition to the above, which is specified in the product’s Physico-chemical test, several other tests, including pesticide and nitrate residues, will evaluate and, if it meets the standard, receive the required certificates.

Import Barberry to Canada in Bulk Packaging

Barberry Bulk Packaging

Along with the quality of the barberry itself, the type of packaging is also very important.
Since barberry is a perishable product and has a minimum moisture content, it must package to enhance the shelf life of barberry.

Barberry, on the other hand, should not be completely in direct touch with the packaging; rather, it should allow air to flow through berries of the barberry to prevent it from blight and color changing.
For this purpose, after various researches, the Artin Barberry production factory uses a kind of fabric for barberry packaging, which makes the barberry reach the destination country with the least amount of damage and color change.

Since barberry is importing to Canada by sea and high ambient humidity is undeniable, reefer containers should use to carry the product in addition to cotton fabrics.
