São Paulo – The Egyptian Commercial Office in São Paulo will be at Fispal Food Service this year. It is the first time Egypt will be at the show, one of the greatest encounters of the food service industry in Brazil.
At least 20 Egyptian companies will exhibit their products at the office’s stand in the show, to occur from June 11 to 14 in São Paulo, Brazil. “This is part of the plan of the Egyptian Commercial Office in Sao Paulo to target specific sector, one of which is foodstuffs, as Egypt is a producer and exporter of many foodstuffs like herbs and spices, fresh, chilled, dried, frozen fruits and vegetables, snacks, juices, dates, olives, and olive oil,” the consul Mohamed Elkhatib, head of the office, told ANBA.
The products brought are still not available in the Brazilian market, and the office intends to find distributors and representatives in Brazil for the companies. They range from dates to olives, olive oil, snacks, drinks and juices, herbs and spices, dried fruits and vegetables.
According to the consul, several meetings are scheduled during the trade show with major Brazilian companies. “This participation has a specific importance as the free trade agreement between Egypt and Mercosur entered into force two years ago and this opens the door for many more trading opportunities,” said Elkhatib.
He pointed out this is the third food show that the Egyptian office participates in this year. The strategy aims to test the market for the Egyptian companies and provide them with real export opportunities.
The Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce will be at the Egyptian stand at Fispal, supporting and advertising information on Arab foods. “This is a partnership between the Arab Brazilian Chamber and the Egyptian Commercial Office, where the Chamber supports the initiative to promote Egyptian products to have opportunities to enter the Brazilian market, specifically pointing out the possibilities of the free trade agreement between Egypt and Mercosur,” pointed out Arab Brazilian Chamber CEO Tamer Mansour.
