Butter Imports From 6 Countries

More than 13,900 tons of butter worth 2.13 trillion rials ($65.73 million) were imported from six countries during the first four months of the current Iranian year (March 21-July 22), the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration announced.
The UAE, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Turkey, Ireland and Germany were the main countries from where the imports were made, IRNA reported.
Deputy Agriculture Minister Hassan Rokni said close to 90% of Iran’s domestic demand for butter are met by imports.
According to the deputy minister, Iranians consume about 60,000 tons of butter every year, some 50,000 tons of which are imported.
Rokni noted that the government plans to become self-sufficient in butter production within the next 10 years through selective livestock breeding for increasing the fat content of milk.
