Egyptian food exports up 19% year on year in 2021

Egypt’s food industry exports totalled $3.1 billion in the first nine months of this year, up from the $2.8 billion in the same period of 2020. This amounts to a 19% year-on-year increase and ranking third among other Egyptian sectors exporting to foreign markets, Trade and Industry Minister Nevine Gamea stated on Sunday.

During a recent speech, which came on behalf of Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, Gamea said that Egypt’s exports of agricultural crops in the first nine months of 2021 hit $1.9 billion, compared to the $1.8 billion achieved in the same period last year, recording an 8% increase.

The most important agricultural crops exported include rice, grains, onions, garlic, potatoes, vegetables, fruits, citrus fruits, and peanuts, for which Russia, Saudi Arabia, Britain, and the United Arab Emirates are the most important markets for these Egyptian exports.
