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.


Market update: Facts about Iran at a glance
  • An energy superpower with the world’s largest natural gas supply and the fourth-largest proven oil reserves
  • With 86 million inhabitants the second most populous nation in the Middle East and the 17th most populous in the world
  • Leading industries in the Middle East in car-manufacture and transportation, construction materials, home appliances, food and agricultural goods, armaments, pharmaceuticals, information technology, power and petrochemicals
  • A regional power with major influence in the region
  • A top five producer in the world of apricots, cherries, sour cherries, cucumbers and gherkins, dates, eggplants, figs, pistachios, quinces, saffron, walnuts, and watermelons

Demand for F&B ingredients rising continuously

With more than 82 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 ranks among the largest segments of the Iranian processing industry. 

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. So it is only natural that more and more leading international and regional ingredient suppliers take part in Iran food ingredients.

The growing interest in Iran became also apparent over the past few years when many international ingredient suppliers opened application labs in Iran for the local development of taste, scent and care solutions. With Iran food ingredients, fairtrade and Palar Samaneh are responding to the request of exhibitors for their own partial tradeshow under the umbrella of Iran agrofood.
