The Egyptian Growers’ Orgnaization (EGO), part of Haggan Group, aims to enter seven new European markets this year, in addition to boosting its exports to 2,000 tonnes.
The CEO and founder of the group, Khaled El-Haggan, said that the company has eyes fixed on the markets of France, Russia, Australia, the United States, Canada, Poland, and Hungary.
He added that the company exports its products of grapes, pomegranates, mangos, citrus, dates, green beans, and strawberries to England, Germany, Holland, Italy, Iceland, Norway, South Africa, Hong Kong, China, and Bangladesh.
He pointed out that the company’s plan is to boost exports to 2,000 tonnes by the end of 2017, up from a current export volume of 700 tonnes of agricultural products.
EGO produces its agricultural commodities from about 2,000 feddans distributed across Egypt.
The company began its work in the field of export of agricultural products in late 2015, as a joint stock company of six farmers.
El-Haggan urged the need to activate the governmental system to control the shoddy products that fall below international quality indicators to contribute to improving the quality Egyptian products and granting them greater competitiveness.
