TEHRAN. Iran’s monthly pistachio exports have hit a record in September. Prices are highly attractive and have boosted a 4.4% rise in exports over August. The market has, nevertheless, witnessed considerable fluctuations.

Sharp rise in exports

Iran shipped 10,336 mt overseas between 22 August and 22 September, which is a 208% surge over the same period last year, when exports ranged at 3,359 mt.
