Origin and manufacture:
We source the wild organic barberries exclusively from Uzbekistan. They mature there, on wild bushes in the remote mountainous regions around Samarkand. The area is extensively certified organic and is only farmed for harvest by local organic farmers. The farmers in this region have been working according to organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution to the preservation of nature.
When ripe, the barberries are plowed by hand, cleaned, the stalk removed and then gently dried with the help of the sun. The drying process used is a very environmentally friendly solar drying method that is extremely gentle on the product.
Arriving in Austria, the barberries are pressure treated and laser cleaned. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests. During the subsequent multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the organic berries are checked individually to rule out any foreign contamination.
