IPD engagement in Egypt

Egypt offers a great diversity of fresh fruit & vegetables and natural ingredients for the European market. The climate in Egypt and the River Nile as an important source of water are of great advantage for agrarian production. The geographic proximity of this North African country to Europe and the smoothly operating logistics ease the process of importing Egyptian products. IPD has been actively involved in Egypt since as far back as 2012, opening up access to the European market for agricultural producers and supporting them on the so-called “last mile".
