40,000+ trade visitors discussed their investments with 616 exhibitors from 17 countries in 18 halls
Exhibitors and visitors agreed: The 29th edition of Iran agrofood was an overwhelming success. Ramin Ahmadzadeh of Efpromm emphasised “The show was great, and as far as serious customers are concerned, I can say it was beyond our expectations.”
It was the massive influx of well over 40,000 visitors and the thousands and thousands of serious B2B meetings that made this edition so successful for the 616 exhibitors from 17 countries exhibiting in 18 halls, up from 311 exhibitors last year. The halls were literally stormed, full of exhibitors and trade visitors engaged in business talks.
The strong growth reflects positive IMF and World Bank assessments, a recovery in consumption and a strong expansion in imports and exports – see Economic outlook Iran by GTAI of 13 May 2022.
The decades-long success story of Iran agrofood as the most important agrofood platform for Iran and its neighbouring countries thus continues with the 2022 event.
Organised by the German trade fair specialists fairtrade and their Iranian partner Palar Samaneh, the 29th edition took place at the Tehran International Permanent Fairgrounds from 17 to 20 June 2022.

Iran is one of the largest agrofood markets in the Middle East
With 86 million inhabitants, 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 €161 million in 2020. There is a good chance that from 2023 onwards, these imports will gradually return to the levels of 2014 to 2018, when annual imports were as high as €341 million, making Iran the second largest importer of such machinery in the Middle East.
