Iranian apples are being sold in Emirati supermarkets at higher prices than their American and French rivals, Sadreddin Niavarani, the deputy manager of the union of fruit exporters and importers said in a meeting, Mehr news agency reported on Tuesday. Fruits and other Iranian agricultural products are exported to countries including China, India, and Pakistan due to their high quality while they can compete with other countries’ products, he added. The official called for higher added value on exports of agricultural products and suggested that the administration can pave the way for re-exporting of quality fruits, as Turkey does. Iran can import high quality fruit from other countries and re-export it after waxing and packing them under its own labels, he said.
