Sept. 9 (Bloomberg) — Iran’s Agriculture Ministry banned the import of 49 agriculture products, Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
Iranian Agriculture Minister Sadegh Khalilian wrote to the Commerce Ministry demanding imports of certain fruit, fruit concentrates and dairy products to be halted until further notice, the newspaper said, citing the document.
The list of products includes onions, garlic, potatoes, pear, strawberries as well as apples from France, pears from China and oranges from Egypt, the newspaper said. The ban also includes powdered milk, pomegranate and tomato concentrates.
The move comes two weeks after the agriculture Ministry announced that non-“essential” imports would be restricted.
