The exports weighed around 895,000 tons, Mohammad Hosseini told the IRNA News Agency.
If the government supports exporters, the figure of exports would be increased to $5 billion per year, he said, adding that the exports amounted to $224 million in the year to March 2005.
This is while some 50 percent of the country's food industry units are inactive and the rest are in operation with only 30-50 percent of their capacity, he said.
