Iran’s Ghadi Group holding company is willing to supply two million tons of oranges, tomatoes and cucumbers to Russia, the company’s president Hamidreza Ghadi said in an interview with Radio Sputnik.
“We are not going to compete with Russia’s domestic producers. What we want is to provide produce which is in short supply in Russia, such as oranges, kiwis and other tropical fruits,” said Mr Ghadi, who has been doing business in Russian since 2012 and is optimistic about the prospects of bilateral cooperation in agriculture.
According to Mr Ghadi, Russian farming produce high quality products and if Iran decided to compete with Russia in other markets, above all in Europe, it would have to work real hard to bring the quality of its products in line with international standards.
He also said that Iran, in its turn, is interested in importing from Russia wheat, malt and soy beans.
