Investment Opportunities in Egypt’s Processed Food Industry



With Focus on Fish Processing and Dried Vegetables

Food processing is an important and well established industry with strong backward linkages to agriculture. It includes a wide spectrum of food subsectors and product groups. Fish processing and dried vegetables in particular enjoy high domestic demand and have huge export potentials. There is also a great demand for these products by the US market. US investments in Egypt in these two value chains can provide much better products to the US consumers (win-win scenario).
ECES, in collaboration with the US Embassy in Cairo, organized this event to discuss investment opportunities in Egypt’s growing processed food industry, how the US companies can profit from rising demand in the region’s most populous country, as well as the potential for export from Egypt to Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
