More than 1.3 tons of caviar worth $539,000 were exported to 23 countries during the first half of the current Iranian year (started March 21), indicating a 110% and 50% increase in weight and value respectively compared with the corresponding period of last year. 
According to Arezou Ghaniyun, an official with the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, the UAE was the main customer of Iran’s caviar during the period, accounting for about a third of total exports (in weight and value). 
“The second largest importer of Iranian caviar was the UK; it accounted for 17% (in weight) of total exports. Portugal, Kuwait and Japan each accounted for 6% of Iran’s caviar in H1. A total of 466 kilograms of caviar worth $202,000 were exported to the UK, Spain, Switzerland, Greece and Portugal, suggesting that 37% of Iran’s exports of caviar were sold to European countries,” she was quoted as saying by IRIB News.
