9th Marketing MonthCrop: 20191. May export shipments are about 10,000 MT of pistachios, 2.5 times more than crop year 2017 (the last on-year crop with the same starting inventory) for the same month. However, Iran’s year-to-date export volume through May stays at around 125,000 MT, which shows a 12% decline compared to crop year 2017. Factors such as government-imposed foreign exchange restrictions have impacted Iranian pistachio export.

2. As expected, Iranian pistachio export to the Far East, Indian Subcontinent and CIS has gathered pace, given the attractive price of Iranian pistachios and the global recovery from the Coronavirus crisis.

3. Pistachio kernel shipments (16,000 MT through May) show a growing trend, owing to the unique taste and color of Iranian pistachios.

4. Increasing controls on the pesticide residue in health-conscious markets, has created a great amount of awareness among larger Iranian pistachio farmers. Already certain limited volume is marketed from Iran with strict guarantees on pesticide residue and Aflatoxin.
