Edita Food Industries is expanding its biscuits segment with the launch of Oniro Mini Lava at a retail price of EGP 3 per pack, the company announced in a press release (pdf). The four-stick biscuit packs come in vanilla and chocolate flavors. The launch comes as part of Edita’s efforts to grow its biscuits segment, which the snackfoods maker says grew at a rate of 79.2% y-o-y in 9M2021, making it Edita’s second fastest-growing segment.
