Exporting Dates from Iran to Russia and Europe
Due to the geographical location and climate of Russia, which is quite cold and usually snow-covered, it is not possible to cultivate date in Russia, so Russia imports its date. the quality of Iranian date as well as the reasonable prices of Iranian date encourage Russia to import date from Iran. One of the reasons for the large number of date being exported to Russia is the presence of 6 million Muslims in Russia and the position of date among Muslims in the holy month of Ramadan.
