“Dole Food Company has previously engaged in the exportation of agricultural commodities to distributors located in Iran and in other countries for onward shipment to Iran in reliance on an OFAC general license that authorizes such activities…In January 2020, due to difficulties in receiving payment and importing the agricultural commodities into Iran following the reimposition of U.S. sanctions against Iran that had been lifted under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Dole Food Company ceased all direct exports of agricultural commodities to Iran and all exports to other countries for the purpose of onward distribution to Iranian consignees or end users.” (SEC Filing, 2020)
