Wadi El Zaytoon is one of the first Egyptian suppliers of citrus to Brazil. It shipped off its first two containers with oranges, limes and tangerines late last December. The shipment arrived at Brazil’s Port of Santos in January.
According to commercial manager Somaya Elarab, three more containers arrived last Sunday, with another five due by March 15. Elarab said Wadi El Zaytoon expects to export 100 containers’ worth of fruit by the end of the season in June. The company produces and exports olives, oranges, limes, tangerines, onions, garlic, grapes and more. It has been selling olives to Brazil since 2017, at a rate of about six containers per month.
