President of Iran Food Industries Associations Mohammad Reza Mortazavi said that he expects the country's food exports to Iraq to rise after the economic sanction against it are removed as a result of the landmark nuclear breakthrough with the G 5+1.

 

'The removal of the sanctions will lead to a boost in imports of wheat from Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine; accordingly this will lead to a surge in exports of ready-to-cook food items to other countries, including Iraq,' press tv quoted Mortazavi as saying on Saturday. 

He said that the removal of the sanctions will lead to the imports of a wide range of food products into Iran, adding, 'The most important products will be dairies, pasta and cereals.' 

The official further emphasized that there will specifically be a boost in joint investments with European food firms to import cereals and export finished products to other countries. 

Mortazavi further emphasized that the removal of the sanctions will reduce the costs for Iranian food industries by at least 20 percent. 

This, he said, will be mainly due to the fact that Iran will be again able to use SWIFT services in banking transactions for imports of raw materials.
