Since we care about our customers’ satisfaction, we hire skilled and trained manpower as well as modern fruit storage methods to take good care of products from the very first step, which is sourcing the demanded product, to the very last one, which is delivering them in great conditions to our customers. This makes our company one of the best Iranian apple suppliers.

Iran produces different kinds of apples such as Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and yellow apples. There are 251,000 hectares of orchards in Iran. Each hectare provides 15 tons of apples per year. Iran is one of the largest apple producers globally, and therefore many countries import apples from Iran.

The vast majority of apple suppliers source their apples from Urmia, Mashhad, Damavand, Semirom, Shemiran, and Azerbaijan provinces, each of which with a different environment. Therefore, there are different types of apple trees with different qualities.

Quality is the most critical factor in apple exports. In addition to our variety of apples, all are produced in high quality. Having a smooth and bright skin, standard size, sanitary packaging, transparent color, and having no spots are good apple characteristics. On top of that, the apple’s aroma is another element that should be considered when buying a good apple, which most Iranian apples have.

Depending on the rootstock type (standard, semi-dwarf, dwarf), they can reach heights from 0.6 to 3 meters. Iranian fruit export company and apple suppliers, export apples to many countries, including India, Georgia, and Iraq.

For transporting apples, we need to consider some points. It is required to keep the apples in a cool and dark place to transport them in the best way possible. To reach that goal, we need an advanced tracker to measure the temperature and humidity. Any slight change in the temperature and humidity can ruin the apple and lead us to our customers’ dissatisfaction. To answer that need, we have our unique tracer device.

Our skillful team has been working in this field for so long that now they know every detail about the apple business. Thanks to their experience and knowledge, now we are able to announce with absolute certainty that no customer will be unhappy with what they receive from Vira.

Iranian Apple cargo handling

Since apples are sensitive to impact and pressure, professional apple exporters must take good care of the situation.

You must always maintain the required refrigeration temperature, even when handling cargo. The cargo must be shielded from moisture in damp weather (rain, snow) since moisture causes early spoilage.
