TEHRAN, May 27 (MNA) – Iranian Industry Minister Nematzadeh said, in order to develop activities in food industries, due attention needs to be paid to international markets.

He urged paroducers and manufacturers to take up a special look towards global markets o food industries saying “of course, domestic products and machineries have made considerable progress over recent years.”

“Appropriate growth has been observed in products, processes, equipment and material,” highlighted the official stressing that all economic activists need to make further efforts to boost their presence in foreign markets.

Iranian Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh noted that over 12,000 units were active in the country’s food industries which offered best quality products.

Iran needs to become a large exporter of food products, highlighted the official saying that, to this end, we can rely on the wide variety of products inside the country as key to success in international markets.

He also emphasized the need to consume domestic products calling on people to provide necessary support for Iranian industries.

As regards industrial machines, the same belief should hold true that domestic machinery knowhow needs to be exploited as much as possible unless one item is only available in foreign markets.

Referring to packaging industries, Nematzadeh deemed them as complementary to food industries explaining “packaging sector holds great significance in that food industries are vulnerable.”

Fortunately, Iran enjoys suitable conditions in packaging arenas both in terms of raw materials and equipment which will hopefully develop on a day to day basis.
