Iran agrofood takes place from 8 to 11 June 2024 and occupies as many as 22 halls at the Tehran International Permanent Fairground.

“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.”
