September 10, 2017

TEHRAN- Iran’s annual dairy production is anticipated to reach over 10 million tons in the current Iranian calendar year (which ends on March 20, 2018), ISNA reported on Sunday quoting Deputy Agriculture Minister Hassan Rokni as saying.

In an interview with ISNA, the official also put the country’s annual dairy output at 9.6 million tons in the past Iranian calendar year.

Saying that Iran has exported 850,000 tons of dairy products to different countries including some European ones in the previous calendar year, Rokni underlined:  “We enjoy better condition this year as some countries such as Russia are putting some big orders.”

Given high quality and diversity of dairy products in Iran, not only the neighboring countries but also some European ones are the customers of these products, he noted.
