|YTD Inventory / Shipment Report |
|10th Marketing Month||Crop: 2019|
1. June export shipments are about 13,000 MT of pistachios, 2 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 June stays at around 140,000 MT, which shows a 5% 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 prices of Iranian pistachios and the global recovery from the Coronavirus crisis.
3. Pistachio kernel shipments (17,000 MT through June) show an upward trend, owing to the unique taste and different varieties of Iranian pistachio which cater the diverse tastes of consumers.
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.
