  • The Egyptian food and beverage ingredient market is enjoying rapid growth (6 percent CAGR between 2016 and 2020) due to high demand from the retail, food service, and food manufacturing sectors.
  • The F&B manufacturing sector is fundamentally dependent on imports for ingredients and raw materials because of the country’s limited agricultural resources.
