Due to shortages in Iran’s domestic markets, the Market Regulation Organization of the Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Trade of this country has banned the export of chicken meat until further notice.
However, some experts in this country believe that this ban will not affect the price of chicken meat in Iran, and the increase in the price of this product is due to the lack of poultry feed.
The bans will take effect on October 22, 2020.
It should be noted that such sudden decisions have caused the country to face a kind of lack of planning in the export of its chicken meat, and despite its high production capacity, it has lost many export markets in recent years.
Although the country is self-sufficient in the production of chicken meat and eggs, the Ministry of Agriculture has recently sent requests for imports of chicken meat, eggs, and cereals to Ukraine.
Statistics from Iran’s customs show that the country exported more than 7,000 tons of chicken meat to the Arab countries of the Middle East, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Venezuela from March to June.
