Iran's Dairy Product Exports to Reach 1m Tons by Mid-March

05 February 2020

IRAN - Iran is expected to export over 1 million tons of dairy products by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (20 March), according to the deputy agriculture minister.

Regulating the market and meeting the domestic needs is one of the agriculture ministry’s top priority and exports are only pursued if the domestic needs are met, Morteza Rezaie said.

According to the official, necessary measures should be taken so that exports of such products would not lead to a rise in prices inside the country.

The official noted that currently, the country has an ideal and favorable condition in all fields of production and supply of livestock products such as milk, poultry, eggs, and red meat.

Poultry production increased by more than 11 percent over the past year, he said.
