TEHRAN. Suppliers are happy that Iran’s monthly dried fig exports performed better than last year in July. The outlook for the new season is, however, far less encouraging.

China buys 80%

Iran exported 365 mt of dried figs worth USD 1.123 million in July. Although these figures range 24% and 22% lower than the 478 mt worth USD 1.444 million shipped in June, they are more than 10% higher than last year. Monthly shipments, in fact, only ranged at 326 mt worth USD 1.022 million in July 2021. Issue is that buyers preferred to wait for the arrival of the new crop for which production usually starts at the end of July. Market inventories and demand were also higher than last year.

China accounted for more than 80% of the volumes ship
