About 1.2 million tons of different types of dates have been produced so far in Iran in the current fiscal year (started March 20), almost as much as that of last year, the chairman of the National Association of Iranian Dates announced.
“Exports have been hampered by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, we expect to export between 15% and 20% of our overall output by the end of the current Iranian year [March 20, 2021],” Mohsen Rashid Farrokhi was also quoted as saying by Young Journalists Club.
North American and European Union countries, as well as Russia, India and China, are the main destinations for Iranian dates.
