Organic agriculture is a fast growing sector of agriculture, as it creates jobs and promotes economic growth and opportunities throughout the Egyptian countryside. Demand for organic farming continues to grow with the growth in consumer demand for organic products.
The organic regulations of the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture describe how the word “organic” or the organic seal of the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture can be used in vegetables or fruits. These clear regulations create entrepreneurial opportunities for producers and processors who want to capitalize on consumer growth in the organic sector. Gadex has succeeded in organic cultivation largely in products (onions – spring onions – butternut squash – sweet potatoes)
