Iran is one of the largest sales markets for food & beverage technology and food ingredients in the Middle East

According to VDMA, Iranian imports of food processing and packaging machinery amounted to €161 million in 2020. There is a good chance that from 2023 onwards, these imports will gradually return to the levels of 2014 to 2018, when annual imports were as high as €341 million, making Iran the second largest importer in the Middle East.

With 86 million inhabitants, 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.
