Export of Agricultural Products

Export of Agricultural Products

Export of agricultural products constitutes a major part of Iran’s export. Due to Iran’s climatic conditions and fertile soil, our country has a high ability to plant and harvest various agricultural products. These products include things like apples, watermelons, tomatoes, pistachios, etc.
High quality and reasonable price can be mentioned from the series of factors that lead to the prosperity of exports in this area. These two factors have increased the demand for Iran’s agricultural products and turned our country into an important pole for the export of agricultural products.

Production Based on Export

A very important point regarding the export of agricultural products is that these products must be grown according to export standards. As long as our subsistence economy is accompanied by crisis and many challenges, all agricultural activities are carried out with the aim of meeting subsistence needs. In this situation, farmers do not seek to meet the necessary standards for export; Therefore, over time, the export capacity of agricultural products decreases. This situation occurs while the export of agricultural products constitutes a major part of our non-oil exports and we must be diligent in the direction of stability and preservation of this sensitive and vulnerable sector.

Standards of Agricultural Products

An important point in this regard is that agricultural products, unlike ordinary goods, do not only need the standards of the country of origin. Agricultural products also need to comply with the standards of the destination country. This makes it difficult to export such products.

Rules for Exporting Agricultural Products

The laws related to the export of agricultural products are so precise and sensitive that if these laws are partially ignored, the exporter or even the producer will incur huge costs.
The greatest sensitivity can happen when the importer of such products has made a purchase based on the marketing activities carried out. What can happen in such a situation is that the buyer notices new problems after the purchase. These sensitivities are felt more deeply when the products were produced according to the order of the buyer, but contrary to his desired standards.

Another important point is to pay attention to the export laws of the destination country. Ignorance or inattention to these laws is one of the harmful factors for the export of agricultural products. But this problem can also be solved through communication with relevant institutions such as the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Mining or through communication with other exporters.

Obstacles to the Export of Agricultural Products

The factors that exist as obstacles in the way of exporters of agricultural products are not limited to one specific case. There are many things in this field that we can name as obstacles. However, one of the most important reasons is the lack of access to product export standards. In the following, we will examine a few more of these cases.

1. The price of raw materials needed by food factories is high compared to other countries. This increases the price of Iranian products compared to other countries.

2. Non-membership in the World Trade Organization causes heavy customs tariffs to be imposed on export goods.

3. Use of transportation methods that are not appropriate for the product.

4. Using wrong and traditional management methods

5. Lack of proper branding

6. Failure to incorporate vision and correct targeting

7. Ignoring sustainable agricultural development policies

8. Export of low-quality products

9. Ignoring the needs of the market

10. Vulnerability of products

The Most Important Export Agricultural Products

1. Orange

In recent years, we have faced a significant increase in the demand for orange imports from Iraq and Persian Gulf countries. The reason for this is the high quality of oranges in the north of the country.

2. Raisins

The export of raisins or dried grapes is more than the export of grapes. Due to the high nutritional value of this product, there is a great desire to import it from countries such as Iraq, Oman and the UAE.

3. Cucurbits

The export of cucurbits is one of the high-profit exports that countries like Russia, Iraq and Pakistan want to import.

4. Potato

Potatoes are exported both raw and semi-prepared. Many foreign markets want to export potatoes from Iran in one of these two ways. Countries such as UAE, Oman and Qatar, as well as countries that are in the neighborhood of our eastern borders, are among these countries.

Honey export has the most demand among countries in the world. Companies that operate in the field of honey export are directly in contact with beekeepers and export a specific volume of honey according to the requested volume and the needs of customers.

7. Pistachios

Pistachio is one of the most important agricultural products of Iran. The export of pistachios and dates is one of the oldest exports of Iran and has a long history.

Barberry is one of the products that most countries request to export. There are different types of barberries that are produced with high quality and ready to be shipped. In order to export the best example of barberry, we must be familiar with its different types. Most applicants for barberry are Turkey and Iraq.

Up To Sum

Agricultural products are exported with great sensitivity and in high volumes. The export items are not limited to the mentioned items and include larger quantities. In order to remove the obstacles in the way of exporting agricultural products, we must be familiar with the laws and regulations of the destination country. Getting to know the standards and laws of the destination country is much more important than the laws of the country of origin.
