The representative of the Consulate General of Islamic Republic of Iran in Astrakhan Hussein Fazel visited the Bashkir scientific-research center on bee-keeping and apitherapy. The guest became interested in the products of Bashkir bee-keepers, in particular, in the cosmetic means with the usage of bee-keeping products in the medical purposes and highly estimated the quality of Bashkir honey. The possibilities of Bashkir honey product deliveries for the Arab countries were under discussion at the meeting.
The Middle East has already estimated the quality of the natural Bashkir honey and honey products at its true worth. In February the first lot of honey was delivered for Kuwait.
That time the Bashkir producers tried to take all wishes of the Arab customers into account – even the labels were printed in Arab language and following all religious traditions of this Muslim country. The free sale certificate was needed too though just few people not only in Russia but in Europe too were familiar with it.
The Bashkir honey of 50 sorts has been sent to Kuwait (buckwheat, white, flower etc) plus the samples of Bashkir cosmetics, produced on the base of honey – various shampoos, creams, bath gels and dishwashing liquids with propolis.
