TEHRAN. While some suppliers highlight the advantage of the fact that intermediaries are missing in Iran’s eastern barberry market, others pinpoint the drawbacks. Fresh barberries produced in the eastern parts of the country, such as in South Khorasan, in fact, need to take the trip to Tehran, where they are dried and packed.

Missing out

Problem is that investors and industrial facilities are lacking in South Khorasan meaning that the barberries grown here cannot be dried or processed in a professional manner. While some suppliers highlight that this situation gives interested exporters the opportunity to buy directly from producers, check the quality of the fruits themselves and save money, others stress that the province is missing the chance to generate higher income and become a well-known origin for barberries in the global market.
