Bad Packaging Wastes Half of Iran’s Fruit Output

Almost half of all the fruit produced in the country perishes due to improper packaging, the head of the Institute of Labor and Social Security said. Speaking in the Second International Festival of Leaders in Packaging Industry, Mohammad Reza Sepehri added that packaging increases high added value in products and services, which signify the need to improve and update the domestic industry. “During the sanction years, most of the packaging machinery was imported from China. Now, after the removal of sanctions, we are looking to purchase high-quality machinery and make the necessary changes,” he said. The four-day International Festival of Leaders in Packaging Industry opened on Monday with the aim of expanding cooperation with international organizations active in the field and familiarizing producers at home with the latest knowhow and technology in the packaging industry.  “In recent years, packaging has never been a priority of major domestic industries, therefore it became isolated and unable to establish international connections,” Afshin Fakhr, secretary of the festival, said. Fakhr noted that promotion of exports will not be possible without an upgraded packaging industry.
