From Farm to Table: The Behind the Scenes
Africa is the world's future breadbasket, and Egypt is the gateway to Africa. We envision Egypt’s future through the empowerment of local farmers, with all stakeholders coming together to achieve a paradigm shift in the agriculture sector.
In Egypt’s economy, agriculture contributes to 14.5% of the country’s GDP, and accounts for 28% of all jobs as well as over 55% of employment in Upper Egypt. According to the Food Agriculture Organization, the agriculture sector witnessed a 20% increase in export revenue in 2019. The good news this year as well is that Egypt’s food exports were not severely affected by the pandemic, with the country being one of the few countries in the region that continued to provide supply despite the challenging circumstances.
