Tajikistan to help boost Iran's poultry industry with egg exports

Iran poultry population 'decimated by disease,' says deputy minister of agriculture

Tajikistan will export 1 to 2 million eggs to Iran to help the country deal with a poultry crisis, according to Sijouddin Isroilov, Tajikistan’s deputy minister of agriculture.

Iran’s poultry population has been decimated by disease and is in need of poultry products, said Isroilov, and the large egg export will not hurt Tajikistan’s domestic market. “Poultry farms in [Tajikistan's] Sughd province have coped with providing the population of the region with the eggs and now intend to sell their product in other regions, including Dushanbe,” he said. Prices for eggs in Iran are also more than double the price in Dushanbe, said the minister.
