Product of the week: Valencia Oranges from Egypt
Hi, I am Mahmoud El Shishiny of Maghrabi Farms. We produce haricot verts, mangetout peas, sugar snaps, organic oranges and other citrus fruits in Egypt for Nature & More. We are certified organic since 1999.
Our company, MAFA, was established in 1989 in Noubareya, about 80 km from Alexandria. This area used to be desert, but we brought it back to life with irrigation. Apart from citrus fruits we also grow organic lettuce, herbs and grapes. Most of the farms have a compost production unit. Here we recycle organic agricultural waste. It is composted together with cow manure, to provide high quality compost. Composting has huge benefits for the soil, climate and biodiversity!
Mahmoud: “A non organic orange is good, but an organic orange is naturally good. The market in Egypte for organic products is still developing, but producers like ourselves have taken the first step by growing and exporting organic products. We believe that together with our competitors we can take this market to a new level, and establish a strong brand for Egyptian Organic Products.”
