TEHRAN. Iran’s cumin exports rose by more than 28% in 2022 as compared with 2021. Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Japan are the most important export destinations. Prices have taken a rather surprising turn.

Exports 28% up

According to official customs statistics Iran exported 1,876 mt of cumin worth USD 3.699 billion in 2022, a 28% rise on the 1,450 mt worth USD 2.888 billion shipped overseas in 2021. This uptick in demand was sparked by the good quality of the 2022 crop and the fact that sufficient supplies are available this season. At USD 1.98/kg average export prices, however, only ranged marginally lower in 2022 than the USD 1.99/kg registered in 2021.

Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Japan are three most important export destinations by far for Iran.
