Iran is one of the largest agrofood markets in the Middle East

Facts & figures on the Iranian agrofood market

With a population of 90 million, Iran has long been the largest food market in the Middle East. Expenditure in the F&B sector is growing steadily, and F&B production is by far the largest segment of the Iranian processing industry. 

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. Iran ranks globally among the top five producers of apricots, cherries, sour cherries, cucumbers and gherkins, dates, eggplants, figs, pistachios, quinces, saffron, walnuts, and watermelons.

According to WTO, Iranian food imports made up for US17.2bn in 2022, up 14.7% compared to US$15.0 billion in 2021. Food exports amounted for US$4.8bn compared to US$5.4 billion in 2021.

According to VDMA, Iranian imports of food processing and packaging machinery amounted to €141 million in 2022, up 9.7% compared to €129m in 2021.

Imports of packaging machinery grew by 23.4%, from €54m in 2021 to €67m in 2022.

Iranian imports of agricultural technology have grown by 15.8% annually over the past five years. The Iranian market for agricultural technology thus ranks among the TOP 2 in the Middle East, in line with Saudi Arabia.

With its four dedicated partial fairs Iran agro, Iran food + bev tec, Iran food ingredients and Iran food + hospitality, Iran agrofood covers the entire value chain from field to fork.

“This year’s Iran agrofood was really unbelievable for us!”

Let's let one exhibitor have his say on behalf of many others. “We have been involved in Iran since the last 22 years and we have always participated at Iran agrofood”, says D. Kurkumelis, Sales Food Engineering Manager with Ing. A. Rossi.

“We have 50 or 60 clients here in Iran, so Rossi is probably one of the main suppliers of food processing engineering. Iran agrofood has always given us a very good start for the next coming year, and we have already some very good orders realized here in the exhibition. So, we are very, very happy and probably I would say, very surprising, that this year’s Iran agrofood was really unbelievable for us. So, we had very good and very interesting contacts.”
