Exporting/Importing Persian Zareshk to Australia

Persian Zareshk to Australia

One of the main markets for major exports of dried Persian Zereshk is the beautiful country of Australia.
In recent years, seedless red barberries have gained a lot of fans in this country.
Among the types of barberry, the preference of importers and chain stores is to buy puffy barberry first and then pomegranate seed barberries.

Pofaki Zereshk has been welcomed by the people of this country due to its light color and lower moisture content.

On the other hand, because most Australian cities are close to the sea, the humidity is high and barberry needs to be lighter in color to change the color later.
Because one of the environmental factors affecting the quality of barberry is the amount of humidity in the environment.
For this reason, reefer containers are always using for barberry transportation.

In reefer containers, temperature and humidity can be adjusted according to the needs of the product.

Another way to increase the shelf life of the product in a high humidity environment is avoiding to keep the barberry in plastic.
In this regard, Artin Barberry Collection uses special fabric packaging for its export-quality products.
