Get to know Basra

The brand Basra represents a special product and a special story. This special story starts with the name Basra. When you do an online search for the word Basra, you will discover that it is the name of the second largest city in Iraq. Thanks to the Iraqi roots of Mr. Maan (the founder of Basra Date Syrup), his knowledge of date syrup and the market and years of close collaboration with producer Frumarco, Basra Date Syrup has gained a lot of popularity in recent decades.

It was 1997 when the idea emerged to start producing a well-known Iraqi date syrup in Europe under the name of Basra. Through a connection Mr. Maan got in contact with the family business Frumarco. Frumarco is a Dutch producer of fruit syrups and is now managed by the seventh generation of the Visschers family. The idea of date syrup appealed to the Visschers family and in 1998 the actual production started.


Dates grow on date palms and are among the oldest cultivated fruits in the world. Thousands of years ago, people became familiar with the benefits of the date palm and its fruits. Besides the fact that dates are tasty, one of the advantages is that date syrup can also be used as a sweetener. Ancient cuneiform scripts from Mesopotamia (as it was called in the period of about 3400 – 600 BC. The region where present-day Iraq and some parts of Syria, Turkey, and Iran are now located) refer to the syrup as the most important sweetener of the time.
