Major exports of Iranian low price pistachios to Russia are through the two provinces of Kerman and Khorasan.
Fandoghi and Badami’s pistachios are producing professionally and in high volumes in Khorasan Razavi province.

Ahmad Aghaei pistachio production center is also in Rafsanjan, Kerman province, which has the highest harvest and high quality.

Since competitive prices are very important in the Russian market, shipping costs should reduce as much as possible.
For this reason, in exporting pistachios from Iran to Russia, 40′ containers must be sent from Iranian cities to Russia.
Because in high quantities, the final price would be lower.

In other words, whether the buyer buys 7 tons or 22 tons, he must pay a fixed shipping fee for the truck or container.
When the order volume is high, the costs divide by the price of the product and pistachios reach the Russian market at a reasonable price.
