Egypt’s potato exports rising

Egypt’s Central Administration of the Ministry of Agriculture issued a report last Wednesday revealing that Egypt’s exports of agricultural products, especially potatoes and citrus, rose to 1 million and 111,000 tons, an Agriculture Ministry official told Egypt Today, reports FreshPlaza, quoting a news article by egypttoday.com .

These shipments were exported to the EU in accordance with international export quality standards, affirming that Egyptian agricultural products were exported to various countries without any obstacles. The Ministry of Agriculture is applying strict measures on all exports of vegetables and fruits to maintain the reputation of Egyptian agricultural exports.

In May 2018, Egyptian agricultural exports of vegetables and fruits to various countries of the world increased, amounting to about 2.88 million tons, according to a report by the Agriculture Ministry’s Central Administration for Agricultural Quarantine.

Egypt has succeeded in opening new markets for agricultural crops in a large number of countries, especially in China, the EU and East Asian countries. That is in addition to Egypt’s success in lifting the ban on Egyptian agricultural exports in some countries, which confirmed the safety of Egyptian procedures and the quality of their agricultural crops, said former Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Abdel Moneim el-Banna.
