Iran’s first shipment of fruits and vegetables to Kuwait since the outbreak of the new coronavirus has been exported from Dayyer Port in Bushehr Province to Shuwaikh Port in the neighboring country in recent days.

Hamid Zadboum, the head of Trade Promotion Organization of Iran, was quoted as saying by IRNA on Sunday that the 500-ton shipment was exported using refrigerated containers.

According to Dayyer Port Manager Fazlollah Ahmadi, the shipment is worth $100,000.

More than $1.4 billion worth of vegetables were exported from Iran during the last Iranian year (ended March 19, 2020), according to the director general of the Fodder and Vegetable Production Bureau with the Ministry of Agriculture.

“A total of 30 million tons of different kinds of vegetables were produced across the country during the period. Some 25 million tons of the amount were produced on farms and orchards, and the remaining 5 million tons were cultivated in greenhouses,” Hossein Asghari was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
