The administration is planning to support the export of domestically produced dates, Mahmud Hojjati, the minister of agricultural Jihad said in Bushehr on Wednesday. About one million tons of dates are farmed annually in Iran, 200 thousand tons of which are exported, he said. In the process of increasing the share of Iranian dates in targeted markets, it would be helpful to renew packages and focus on marketing as well as the customers’ tastes, Hojjati added. Iran is the largest producer and exporter of date in the world.
