Iran's carrot exports have dropped by 33 percent in terms of value and 30 percent in terms of volume during the first four months of the current Iranian year (March 21 to July 22, 2021), compared to the same period last Iranian year
According to Mahmoud Bazari from the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran (TPOI), Iran exported 25,000 tons of carrots worth about $4 million within the mentioned period. The official added that it has been suggested that the recent rise in the price of carrots in Iran is due to its exports. It is clear from the statistics that this is not true at all.
Reportedly, the price of a kilogram of carrots in Iran has risen to 250,000 rials (about $5.95) in recent weeks. At present, the price of 1 kg of the root varies between 130,000 and 170,000 rials (about $3.09-$4.04).
