The El-Marwa Food Industries company that packages and exports frozen fruits and vegetables, targets to increase the volume of its exports by 25% to 30% this year—to 650 containers of 15,600 tonnes of frozen fruits and vegetables—and expand in some foreign markets, according to Shereen El Sabagh, exports director at El-Marwa.
She told Daily News Egypt that the company exported 12,000 tonnes of frozen vegetables and fruits during the last year with 500 containers weighing 24 tonnes per container.
She explained that El-Marwa seeks to expand in the coming period in the US, French, Italian, Spanish, and Canadian markets by increasing the number of its agents in these countries.
She noted that the company’s products are capable of accommodating the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council to cover the needs of those markets.
El-Marwa was founded twenty years ago, and exports its products to the European countries, America, Canada, and the Middle East and Gulf countries.
The company is packing and exporting 26 different frozen fruits and vegetables products, distributed among 21 types of vegetables such as artichokes, carrots, green peas, cauliflower, okra, and sweet corn, as well as olives, and five types of fruits such as strawberries, guava, banana, pomegranate, and peach.
