CAIRO – 30 July 2022: President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has called for consolidating partnership with the Jordanian side in the livestock sector in order to provide high productivity meat breeds to the Egyptian market.

Sisi made the statements in a meeting with Director General of the National Service Projects Organization (NSPO) of the Armed Forces Walid Abul Magd; Chairman of the National Animal Production Company Mohamed Salah; CEO of Jordanian meat production Al Delta company Basheer Fareed and businessman Mohamed Halawa.

The president urged enhancing partnership with the Jordanian side with the aim of covering Egyptian local needs, maintaining the strategic stock of live cattle in Egypt and reducing reliance on imports in this regard.


The meeting followed up on a number of the NSPO projects across the country.

Sisi reviewed with the officials developments pertinent to the construction of a dairy factory in Borg El Arab, including equipment and production lines carried out in partnership with the private sector and long-standing foreign expertise in this field.

“The factory will be built on ​​40,000 square meters with a production capacity that will reach 12,000 tons of cheese annually,” the Presidency said.

Sisi urged being selective with the provision of all the factory components including specialized technical labor, raw materials, production requirements, and packaging materials.

This should ensure the highest quality of cheese production, especially types that are currently imported in order to ensure their availability in the local market, bridge the import gap and open prospects for future export opportunities.

The president urged enhancing efforts to establish advanced milk collection centers nationwide and providing them with laboratory tests, storage, and the necessary veterinary services, in order to reduce dependence on importing milk and achieving an added value for small breeders.
