Egypt’s food safety watchdog completes updated whitelist of 112 approved food companies

The National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) has compiled a whitelist of 112 food and dietary supplement manufacturers and suppliers under its supervision to ensure they meet food safety guidelines, authority head Hussein Mansour said, according to Al Mal. The list comprises 71 exporting food companies, including high-profile manufacturers Edita, Juhayna, Domty, Nestle, Greenland, Hero, and Halwani Bros. It also greenlights 20 dietary supplements producers — including Eva Pharma, Memphis Pharma and EIPICO — as well as 21 accredited commodity suppliers. The NFSA was established after a parliamentary vote in 2017, and assumed the role of 17 formerly existing agencies overseeing food safety in the country.
