CNN features Egyptian agriculture exporter Sherif El Magrabi
CNN profiles Sherif El Magrabi, the owner of Magrabi Agriculture, one of the lead Egyptian exporters of fruits and vegetables, about how he grew his farms, where he exports to, and the secret to growing great agriculture products (watch, runtime: 02:41). Magrabi believes that Egypt has surpassed Spain as the world's number one exporter of oranges. His farms are on an area of 50k acres and the citrus farm alone is the size of greater Beirut. Magrabi Agriculture exports to 57 countries worldwide including all of the EU, a few African countries, China, Australia, New Zealand, “and everything in between.”
But even El Maghrabi isn’t immune from corona: Supply disruptions due to covid-19 have been slowing the export of Egyptian oranges to China. The good news coming out today is that shipments are gradually resuming, Fresh Plaza reports.
