Since the importer can choose the most affordable shipping and storage, the price becomes more affordable.

Since Iran’s fresh fruits grow naturally with no or a small number of preservatives, if they are not packed appropriately, they decay apace. Also, it affects the customer’s decision whether to buy such exported produce or not. Some factors affect packaging fruits and vegetables, like environmental issues, appearance characteristics, shipping conditions, rules and regulations, characteristics of the export destination, product information, and product type.

Iran’s fresh fruits keep their freshness during the period it takes to be used by customers in other countries. Packaging can be changed according to the condition of the destination country and the kind of fruits and vegetables.
