Food Export

Food Export

Export of food products is brought up because due to population growth in most countries, the need for food products is felt more than ever before. On the other hand, due to the difference in the climatic conditions of different countries, it is not possible to produce all food products centrally in one country; Therefore, countries have entered the field of import and export of such products. Iran is one of the countries that, due to its four seasons and the climatic conditions in different parts, exports millions of tons of its products in the field of summer crops, grains and fisheries to neighboring countries every year.

Important Factors in Food Exports

Food export should be based on some important factors. Factors such as packaging, transportation, storage techniques, paying attention to eating habits and the purchasing power of people in the market of the target countries, all should be considered and evaluated in food exports. In the following, we will examine two important factors in export:

All aspects of the product’s health and freshness should be measured in the packaging. Also, the packaging should represent Iranian identity and culture to other countries of the world. Part of the costs related to goods and product marketing is related to the packaging of export products. Usually, the percentage of packaging in the finished product cost is 10 to 15%. But in Iran, this percentage will be as high as 35-50%.
The features that a good package should have are as follows:
According to the rules requested by each market

The ability to gain trust
creativity and innovation

2. Transportation

In the export of food, we face two categories: perishable and non-perishable. non-perishable foods, not in the strict sense of the word, which means reducing their quality; It means that some food items lose their quality after some time. This period can be several hours in some foods; Like fisheries and vegetables and in others a few days; Like dairy.
