The government is planning to buy some 20,000 tons of apples and 40,000 tons of oranges at guaranteed prices from local farmers to fill up its reserves for the Norouz (Iranian New Year) holidays, a deputy agriculture minister, Mohammad Ali Tahmasebi, told Mehr News Agency.

Every year, the government includes certain agricultural products in its guaranteed purchase plan to build up its strategic reserves and control prices in the domestic market.

The upcoming Iranian New Year holiday begins on March 21, 2017. Domestic fruit consumption increases, as the occasion is celebrated with relatives and friends paying visits to one another. Fruit is a typical treat offered to guests in Iranian homes.
