Iran Pistachio Association estimates that 235,000 tons of pistachio will be produced in Iran in the current fiscal year (March 2017-18), to register a 38% increase compared with last year. According to the association, 6,000 tons of pistachios are left from last year’s harvest and Iran has over 240,000 tons of the product to supply the market this year, Iranico reported. “Iran supplies more than 50% of the world pistachio market,” deputy minister of industries, mining and trade, Mojtaba Khosrotaj, said, adding that Iran’s main rival in pistachio production is the US state of California. Close to 16,660 tons of pistachio worth $173.66 million were exported from Iran to 56 countries, including the US, Ukraine, the UAE, Italy, Bahrain, Brazil, Bulgaria, Turkey, Canada, Qatar, Switzerland, France, Poland, Sweden, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Netherlands, Thailand, Japan, Romania and Hong Kong in the first four months of the current fiscal year (March 21-July 22).
