Iran’s share of Iraq’s 2-million-ton annual flour market stands at 320,000 tons or 16%, the chairman of Kermanshah Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture said.
Keyvan Kashefi added that the western Iranian province bordering Iraq accounts for 24,000 tons of Iran’s total exports of the product to the neighboring country.
“Kermanshah has 14 active flour factories with a capacity to produce 678,000 tons per year. These are currently working at 50% of their full capacity. We also have two dormant factories with a combined capacity to produce 78,000 tons. These can also become operational, if we try to meet a bigger portion of the demand in the Iraqi market,” the official was quoted by the news portal of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture as saying.
