Iran pistachio and International pistachio production and trade is about 100 years old.
Iran’s pistachios are exported to nearly all countries of the world.
- The construction of a pistachio garden is a long-term investment in which the farmer will risk investment at least for the next 15 years.
- Annual pistachio production in Iran is estimated at an average of 200,000 tons.
- Pistachio production last year was estimated at 225,000 tons , while production of this year is projected at 55,000 tons due to the unprecedented damage caused by the climatic conditions of the spring.
According to estimates, more than a million people in more than 15 provinces of the country have income from the Iran pistachio industry.
Usually about 80 percent of Iran’s pistachio production is exported and 20 percent of it is consumed internally.
Due to the larger export market, the price of pistachios is determined by its price on the world ,Therefore, the domestic price of pistachios is always the result of multiplying its global price market by the rate of Rials against foreign currencies.
Pistachios in the world are mainly exported in bulk, pistachio traders and sellers in the countries of destination, according to the taste of the market are, consumed, packed, marketed, and then sold it.

Return of export currency
Normaly, Iran’s pistachio farmer’s sales price is about 95% of the export price of pistachios by Iranian businessmen.
Also, the average margin of pistachio exporter’s profit is less than one percent of its export sales price. This means that 99 percent of the currency from the export of pistachios is paid back to the farmer to pay the farmer and cover export costs.
The return of foreign exchange from pistachio exports due to international political and banking sanctions has long been done only through the capillary network and informal network created between Iranian and foreign traders.

IRANIAN GREEN PISTACHIO KERNEL
This type of Iranian pistachio kernel in Iran known as a twice shelled kernel, this sort of pistachios (pista) is very green.
In this type of green kernel, the red soft skin removed, that is why it has a completely green and uniform appearance. Almost 90% of the production of this kind of kernel used for export.

There are 4 factors currently affecting the Iran pistachio market
1-The dollar’s instability
Dollar’s instability has affection on Iran pistachio price,Due to the Iran-US dispute and the announcement by the United States about the imposition of sanction against Iran, created a psychological climate, with the dollar rising to 180,000 Rials last month.
With the replacement of the Central Bank chairman of Iran and the change of central bank policies, as well as the emphasis of 4+1 countries (Germany, Britain, France, China and Russia) in the absence of the United States in these sanctions and declaring support for Iran, the price of the dollar fell to 140,000 Rials.
But given the fact that today all the sanction against are being revoked by the United States, it can cause changes in the price of the dollar, which causes uncertainty and confusion among Iranian traders.
2-Pistachio crop reduction
In 2017-2018, Iran pistachio production was reduced by more than 70 percent due to untimely cold and warm weather , the highest reduction in pistachio harvest has occurred in Kerman province , the largest and oldest center of pistachio, most of the old pistachio exporters used to buy pistachio from this province.
That’s why supplying the product to export pistachio is hard this year.
3-Governmental directive on the return of the export currency
The Iranian government has announced in the circular that the currency derived from the export of Iran pistachio must be sold on a stock exchange under the supervision of the government; in the government exchange.
the price of the dollar is in the range of 80000 to 90000 Rials , which is very costly to the exporters.
The Iranian government has also announced that Iranian pistachio exporters who refuse to sell their dollars on the stock exchange
They are known as smugglers , and this has been a concern for exporters, because if a dollar is traded in a stock exchange , each issuer will cost about 60,000 Rials per dollar.
4-Buy in cash
Last year, most Iran pistachio merchants bought pistachio in credit from farmers and they paid them after sale of the product, this year because of a shortage of pistachio, farmers only sell their pistachios in cash.

The price of the dollar increased compared to the previous week (125,000 Rials) and amounted to 142,000 Rails, two weeks ago the price of the dollar reached 170,000 Rails, so farmers increased their pistachio prices,
But they are resisting against decreasing pistachio price same as currency price,The most alarming news for the big traders is the announcement of the Iranian government that said all export income (currency like dolor) must return back to Iran and sales it at a governmental (secondary) price rate (of about 100,000 Rial for us Dollar), some traders have given up their pistachio exports after this rule.
Iranian pistachio market report( 10/7/2018)
Last week, Iran pistachio trade faced its lowest level in the past year.
The main reason is the sharp decline in the Rial rate against the dollar.
From past times, Iranian farmers have announced the price of their pistachios in proportion to the price of the dollar.
Due to the one side withdrawal of the United States from the nuclear deal with Iran and the imposition of economic sanctions against Iran, during the past year, the price of the Rial against the Dollar fell from 390 thousand Rials in last year to 170,000 in last week , so farmers raised their pistachio price to related to this rate .
Iran pistachio price Raise
This raised Iran pistachio prices to related us Dollar rate.
In past week, with the announcement of Europe in support of Iran to establish of a new money transfer system for Iran, and also the adoption of new laws that increased the authority of the Central Bank of Iran.
After that the price of the dollar began to decline from 170,000 Rials, (price report is $ 125,000 Rials at this moment).
But Farmers are refusing to rebound their prices, so traders and exporters are waiting for a stabilization of the price range of the dollar rate and their do not decide on the deal.
We should add that this year, Iran has been severely crippling pistachio crop, and because of the lack of supply, it tends to see a tendency to sell at high prices on the market.
At the moment, the highest purchasing pressure on the Iranian pistachio market comes from the Indians, due to the closeness of the largest Indian festival, Diwali.
On the other hand, in the past week, truck drivers in Iran have been striking, which has disrupted Iran’s transportation system and, as a result, Iran’s exports to other countries, and still not all drivers have returned to their jobs.
The pistachio production of year 2018 and the warehouse.
The Iranian Pistachio Association’s preliminary forecast is that the total Iran pistachio production will be 55 thousand tons in a new year.
As noted above, this dramatic decline in product in 2018 due to climate shocks in the winter and spring of this year.
The highest reductions in the amount of Iran pistachio production in Kerman province have been experienced since the previous year, while other areas of pistachio work better and their reduction will be less than Kerman.
Also, this year’s dominant Iran pistachio crop will be of long variety (Ahmad Aghaee,Akbari,Badami).
According to the Iranian Pistachio Association, the amount of transshipment from the year before 2018 is about 35 thousand tons.
This amount transshipment is due to a shortage of crop and also because of high increases in the dollar against the Rial.
Since pistachio is an export product with a dollar price, Iranian merchants and gardeners are considered as currency equivalent during inflation, in order to avoid the effects of the depreciation of the Rial.
Pistachio demand “Far East”
The Iranian pistachio exported to the Far East until 2007 has had a bullish trend regardless of Iran’s pistachio production. After 2007, demand fluctuations followed the Iran’s pistachio change. Production and demand numbers show that between 2002 and 2009, about 20 percent of Iran’s pistachio production exported to the Far East, and after 2009, demand for Far East had reached to 30 percent of Iranian pistachio production.
The total amount of pistachios exported from Iran and the United States to the Far East has been increasing, rising to 145 thousand tons in 13 years from 24 thousand tons in 2003, which represents an increase of 516 per cent in demand.
The amount of pistachio imported to the Far East from the sum of the countries of Iran and the United States is consistent with the amount of pistachios exported from Iran, and only in a few years of low pistachio production, the American pistachio filled the supply gap. This circular graph shows that “Far East” is a major destination for this year’s pistachio.
Of course, Seems the Indian market in a match with the ” Commonwealth of Nations” and the European market will take them over and it will take a larger share of Iran’s pistachios than in the past.
Finally, according to available information, it is expected that the total pistachios available today will not have a significant chaos compared to last year.
