Potato export from Egypt to Europe already at 200.000 tonnes


Agriculture Ministry: “Since the beginning of the export season of agriculture products, Egypt's exports of potatoes increased to 200,000 tons.”

He stressed that these shipments were exported to the European Union in accordance with international export quality standards, affirming that Egyptian agricultural products were exported to various countries without any obstacles.
 
He explained that the Ministry of Agriculture is applying strict measures on all exports of vegetables and fruits to maintain the reputation of Egyptian agricultural exports.
 
In May 2018, Egyptian agricultural exports of vegetables and fruits to various countries of the world increased, amounting to about 2.88 million tons, according to a report by the Agriculture Ministry's Central Administration for Agricultural Quarantine.
 
Egypt has succeeded in opening new markets for agricultural crops in a large number of countries, especially in China, the European Union and East Asian countries.
 
That is in addition to Egypt's success in lifting the ban on Egyptian agricultural exports in some countries, which confirmed the safety of Egyptian procedures and the quality of their agricultural crops, former Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Abdel Moneim el-Banna said.
 
Egypt's exports of citrus fruits increased to reach $502 million during 2017-2018, compared to $446 million dollars during 2016-2017.
