Interview: Iran Pistachio Exports Grow 50%

As Iranian pistachio is exported to almost all countries, Vietnam with 25,000 tons of imports was the biggest importer during the period under review
This year, production is estimated to suffer a drastic fall to stand at 55,000 tons due to the heatwave in the spring, causing damage to pistachio orchards on top of the persisting water shortage
Around 123,000 tons of pistachios worth $1.2 billion were exported from Iran during the nine months since the beginning of the current crop year (September 23, 2017, to June 2018), registering a 10.8% and 50% increase in weight and value respectively compared with the similar period of the previous crop year, the head of Iran Pistachio Association said.
