Have got samples of licorice from Afghanistan, and hope we can get it out to the licorice-loving Danes soon. Licorice root from Afghanistan is considered some of the world's best because of the special climate, the cultivation of the mountains at over 800 meters altitude and a high content of the sweet ingredient that gives the licorice flavor.
Warfair works with the Afghan company Shadian to get licorice root from Afghanistan to Denmark.
Licorice root from Afghanistan can create jobs for both farmers and factory workers. Licorice production has created about 120 direct jobs and 5-600 indirect jobs. 80% of employees are women.
