Join The Conversation

The agro-food sector in Egypt is a key contributor to the local economy. In fact, Egypt’s retail food sector size is around $15 billion, and experts foresee growth of 15-20% over the next five years.

The country’s fast-growing food market is also translating into greater emphasis on the importance of food safety throughout the food value chain and the protection of consumer health. This is especially evident now during the COVID-19 pandemic which has posed a serious health hazard worldwide.

Food Africa & pacproccess MEA webinars, part of the IFP Group Webinar Series, aim to address the challenges and opportunities that recent global developments present in the agro-food and packaging sectors. The webinars will bring together leading food industry experts to share insights, highlight emerging opportunities, explore new technologies, and lay down the way forward.
