by | Nov 17, 2022 | Dates, Dried Fruits, driedfruits, Iran

The largest number of date exports was allocated to Mazafati, Sayer, and Zahedi dates by weight since the beginning of this year. Also, the largest number of date export was allocated to Mazafati, Shahani, and Zahedi dates in terms of export value. The export of Iranian dates has decreased by about 15 percent in the first nine months of this year compared to last year.
Customs statistics
According to the Iran Customs statistics, 205,212 tons of Iranian dates worth 176,696,552 USD were exported from Iran in the first nine months of 2022. The average price of Iranian dates for export has been 0.86 USD per kg during this period. The largest number of date exports was related to Mazafati dates in terms of weight and export value during this period. 91,103 tons of Mazafati dates worth 101,031,803 USD (1.11 USD per kilogram) were exported from Iran in the mentioned period. The export of Mazafati dates accounted for 44.4 percent by weight and 57.2 percent of the export value of the total export dates in the first nine months of this year.
After Mazafati dates, most of the exports in terms of weight are allocated to Sayer dates exporting 28,284 tons (13.8 percent), Zahedi date with an export of 27,675 tons (13.5 percent), Kaloote dates exporting 22,695 tons (11.1 percent), Shahani with an export of 21,952 tons (10.7 percent). The highest export income after Mazafati in terms of export value in the first nine months of this year is related to Shahani dates exporting 17,005,464 USD (9.6 percent), Zahedi dates exporting 16,641,770 USD (9.4 percent), Kaloote dates with the export of 13,412,300 USD (7.6 percent), Sayer dates with 11,876,021 USD (6.7 percent), and Piarom dates with 6,748,390 USD (3.8 percent).
Piarom dates – the most expensive
The most expensive Iranian dates for export is Piarom dates with an average price of 3.20 USD per kilogram during this period. After Piarom, the following dates rank next in this regard. Mazafati dates with  1.11 USD/kg, khasoei dates 0.98 USD/kg, Kabkab 0.94 USD/kg, Shahani 0.77 USD/kg, Zahedi 0.60 USD/kg, and Kaloote with an export price of 0.59 USD per kilogram. The cheapest export date in Iran is Sayer dates with a price of 0.42 USD per kilogram.
Sanction effects
The export of Iranian dates has decreased in the first nine months of this year compared to the same period last year. 238,687 tons of dates worth 209,795,275 USD (0.88 USD per kilogram) were exported from Iran in the first nine months of 2021. The exports have declined by 14 percent by weight and by 15.8 percent in terms of export value in the first nine months of this year compared to last year. The average price of each kilogram of exported dates has also dropped by 2.3 percent compared to the previous year. Decreasing the export demand this year is the most significant reason for the reduction in exports and the average price of each kilogram of exported dates compared to last year. The main factor in reducing Iran’s date export demand is the problems related to the sanctions against Iran, including financial and bank transfers.
Compared to the last six weeks, there has been a significant increase in domestic and export demand for Iranian dates due to the arrival of the new year product in the market. This increase in demand and limited supply of dates has caused a significant increase in the price of Iran’s export dates in the domestic market of Iran and international markets. Compared to the last six weeks, the cost of Iranian dates for export has risen by 11 to 13.5 percent in global markets.
