Company Profile

The arable land in Egypt was estimated by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as being about 6.02 million feddans (1 feddan=1.038 acres=.42 hectare) in 1987. This was the equivalent of about 0.12 feddan per capita, one of the lowest in the world. The warm weather, plentiful water, and exceptionally fertile soil, however, enabled Egyptian farmers to practice double and multiple cropping, which effectively doubled the arable area. Nevertheless, the relative scarcity of arable land, coupled with, among other things, high population growth, made Egypt depend on external sources for about half of its food supply in the late 1980s.

At that time, businessmen were invited to contribute to economic, social and agricultural reform through desert reclamation with an aim to increase the arable land, provide new jobs, and plant new crops that could be exported.

Consequently, Maghraby family took the initiative and acquired 500 acres of land in the Nobaria area - north of Cairo - in a desert reclaimed area that is almost 80km distance from Alexandria (the Mediterranean sea-port). Today, Magrabi Agriculture owns and centrally manages almost 8,500 acres in Egypt through an integrated food safety and quality management system that complies with the food industry's international standards.

Future Prospects
