Iran has exported 11,000 tons of egg for the past two months, Hedayat Asghari, the head of Iran's Egg Producers' Union said on Saturday.

Iran earns $1.3 through selling one kilograms of egg, Asghari said, the IRNA News Agency reported.

Afghanistan with 5, 550 tons of egg accounted for the largest share of Iran's egg exports.

Iraq, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan were the other main destination markets for Iran's egg exports.

Asghari previously said that there are some limited markets for egg in the region so there is a tight competence between exporter countries to win these markets.

"Currently Afghanistan, Iraq and Tajikistan are the biggest importers of eggs in region and they have good markets for Iranian exporters. But India, Pakistan and Turkey are dominating these markets," he said.

Iran is one of the biggest producers of egg in the Middle East region.
