Origins of Arashan products

We deliver our products from Central Asia, namely, a small country of Kyrgyzstan. Central Asia refers to the region located in the central part of the Asian continent. The term is usually used to refer to five former Soviet Union “stan” countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.

The region has been somewhat of a cultural melting pot where local nomadic culture mixed with Middle Eastern Islamic culture, Russian Soviet culture, and European and Asian cultures connected via the Silk Road. The region is varied when it comes to its geography as well. Alpine mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are at a stark contrast with steppes of Kazakhstan, and deserts in Turkmenistan.

Kyrgyzstan is one of Central Asian countries with sublime nature. The mighty mountains, alpine meadows and lakes are what Kyrgyzstan is famous for. Lake Issyk Kul is the second largest high-altitude lake surrounded by snow-capped alpine mountains. In fact, 95% of its surface is covered with mountains. The highest peak, Pobeda (meaning victory from Russian), is ‎7,439 m (24,406 ft) high. The Tien Shan region covers 80% of Kyrgyzstan, and it's been described as the "Switzerland of Central Asia."

The nature in Kyrgyzstan is pure and able to provide with not only delicious, but also nutritious products. Honey harvested from the alpine meadows of Kyrgyzstan has repeatedly been recognized as the best in the world. Dried apricots, mulberries and raisins have been favorite foods Kyrgyzstanis since the Middle Ages, when they were traded across the Eurasian continent via the Great Silk Road.
