Export of Nuts & Dried Fruits to Russia
Russia is one of the most populous countries in the world, so it accommodates many consumers with different tastes and is a good market for goods. In economic affairs, the political relations of the country of origin and destination are very important factors that have a direct impact on the laws of export and import.
Russia has a cold climate and it is not possible to produce agricultural products in almost half of the year, so it imports most of its agricultural products to meet the needs of its population. Due to the shortage of these products, their prices are higher in this country than in other markets and will bring more profit to the exporter
It is true that product quality is a very important factor to enter the field of competition, but empty quality brings disaster to the exporting market, which we are witnessing a lot right now, a phenomenon called bulk sales. For this reason, for profitable exports, it is very important to pay attention to packaging and branding, which in today’s modern market is as crucial as quality and sometimes even more.
The most important agricultural products exported from Iran to Russia
Various goods are exported from Iran to the Russian market, but if we want to introduce the most important goods in this market, we must mention saffron and raisins, these two products are in fact the main agricultural products of Iran to Russia.
But other products such as dates and citrus also have a relatively good position in this field.
But if we want to introduce the agricultural goods exported to Russia in general in the last few years, it will be as follows:
Fruits (kiwi, pomegranate, orange, etc.)
Vegetables (coriander, basil, parsley, etc.)
Nuts and dried fruits (raisins, pistachios, and dates)
Vegetables (sweet pepper, tomato, cucumber, etc.)
Medicinal plants (mint, echium, etc.)
Spices (cinnamon, sumac, turmeric, etc.)
Iran is one of the largest producers of pistachios, dried figs, dates, and raisins in the world and by using its production capacity has been able to be a major competitor to other producing countries in the field of nuts and dried fruit exports to Europe such as pistachios and dates. Iranian nuts and dried fruit is one of the best-selling Iranian products in the world, and 5% of total exports are related to dried fruit exports; According to available statistics, Iran’s nuts and dried fruit exports are more than two billion dollars annually.
Edible nuts and dried fruits are two different groups of products that are commonly traded by companies in international trade. The reason for this is that they are more durable compared to fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as easier storage conditions. Edible nuts and dried fruits are mostly used as snacks or as raw materials in bakeries or confectioneries.
Imports of peanuts are growing in Europe due to the consumer’s tendency towards a healthier life. The Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, and emerging markets in Central and Eastern Europe provide opportunities for nuts suppliers. Food safety certification with repeated laboratory tests, along with corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards, can provide great benefits to nuts and dried fruit exporters.
According to the statistics of the union of nuts and dried fruit exporters in the first seven months of 1396, the export of Iranian pistachios and pistachio kernels weighing 38,535,123 tons and worth 530623294 dollars, was at the top of Iran’s nuts and dried fruit exports. Raisins with a weight of 51,403,919 tons and a value of $ 90,814,035 were in second place. Iran is the first exporter of pistachios and the third-largest exporter of raisins.
Iran is in a good position in terms of the quality of nuts and dried fruits, and for this reason, it has its own fans in Russia. These products are usually offered in bulk or in small packages and there is still poor branding about them. The best products for export in the field of nuts and dried fruits are pistachios, walnuts, raisins and dates, and these products have gained a good position for themselves in the Russian market, especially Iranian pistachios have more fans and are better known than those mentioned. However, hygienic points must be carefully observed in the field of their storage and packaging.
The basis of Iran’s dried fruit exports is pistachios, raisins, dates and recently some figs; Exports of other commodities such as walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and… are less than other products. Therefore, the total export of Iranian nuts is based on these three products: pistachios, raisins and dates. Of course, less exports of other products indicate the existence of capacity and the need for marketing and more work to introduce and find customers for them.
Kian Karaman Aria Company is one of the largest suppliers of nuts and dried fruits. One of the most important goals of the management of the company is the direct and immediate supply of nuts and dried fruits according to the World Health Standard and the Food and Drug Administration with the qualities desired by consumers and offering competitive prices to esteemed customers.
