The first lot of Bashkir honey is delivered for Kuwait

author: Galya Nabieva

Specialists of the Bashkir bee-keeping and apitherapy scientific-research center sent the first lot of honey to Kuwait today. This is not the first delivery of Bashkir honey for foreign countries. The taste of natural Bashkir honey is already highly appreciated in France and Japan. Not long ago citizens of Berlin could try various sorts of Bashkir honey at the international exhibition “Green Week-2010”.

The preliminary agreements concerning honey deliveries for Kuwait have been signed still in September. But the buyers turned out to be very exigent and Bashkir producers tried to take all their demands into account. Now even the labels are printed in Arab language and taking the traditions of this Muslim country into consideration. Besides, they wanted to see the so-called gold seal letter, which just few specialists know about not only in Russia but in Europe too.

Today the first 500kg of honey have been sent to Kuwait’s company “Honey Rivers” (50 different sorts of honey, bottled separately plus 25 items of cosmetics on the base of honey –shampoos, creams, gels etc).

Bashkir bee-keepers hope the quality of our honey will satisfy the citizens of this Arab country, moreover many eastern sweets in this region are traditionally made on the base of honey.
