The most important types of seedless Iranian barberry that are well known in export markets can be mentioned as follows:

  • Barberry puffy type: Persian Pofaki Zereshk (Best type for import barberries to Kuwait)
  • Barberry pomegranate seeds: Persian Anari Zereshk

The most important differences between these two types of barberry are the difference in color, puffiness and crushing percentage of barberry.

Bulk Barberry Packaging

There are several ways to pack barberry.

Some barberries production units pour the berries directly into cartons, in which the Kuwaiti health department sometimes causes problems with the product.

Because from a health point of view, direct contact of the product with the carton is not correct.

Some manufacturers put barberry in plastic and then put it in cartons. The disadvantage of this method is that barberry sweats quickly in the sea and other environments with high humidity and then turns black.
Artin Barberry Production Factory was able to solve this need of barberry export customers by inventing the use of perforated cloth bags for air passage for the first time.

By placing barberry in special cloth bags with a certain temperature, barberry will reach its final consumers without any change in color or condition.

Another point that must observe is that barberry must place in cartons that have a label with an Arabic or English name along with the date of production and expiration.
