Exhibitors according to main exhibiting countries 

Iranian exhibitors are naturally at the forefront, as they have come to master the entire spectrum of the agrofood industry, and at a very high level. No wonder that many hundreds of Iran’s leading producers and suppliers will once again warmly welcome their customers to this year's Iran agrofood.

The Brazilian pavilion with its 10 exhibitors will certainly be one of the other show highlights again. China is represented by around 20 exhibitors, and 9 German companies are showcasing flavors & ingredients as well as food packaging machinery.

India is present with 8 exhibitors, while 10 Turkish suppliers offer dedicated solutions and technologies for the Iranian agricultural and food industry.

Russia is represented by a group of companies assisted by the Export Support Center of Krasnodar Region and exhibitors from the Stavropol region in the North Caucasus.

Iran is one of the largest agrofood markets in the Middle East

With a population of 86 million, Iran has long been the largest food market in the Middle East. Expenditure in the F&B sector is growing steadily, and F&B production is by far the largest segment of the Iranian processing industry. 

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. Iran ranks globally among the top five producers of apricots, cherries, sour cherries, cucumbers and gherkins, dates, eggplants, figs, pistachios, quinces, saffron, walnuts, and watermelons. 

According to VDMA, Iranian imports of food processing and packaging machinery amounted to €121 million in 2021.
