Food & beverages: A booming industry in Africa

With Africa’s population projected to reach 2.5 billion by 2050, the food and beverages sector is booming, driven by a youthful and urban-centric consumer base. This surge in demand for diverse products is a key factor in the industry’s role as a major driver of economic growth and job creation.

In Egypt, the food industry is experiencing notable growth, propelled by ongoing modernization in factories and robust support for small and medium-sized companies.

Additionally, Egypt's strategic position is strengthened by free trade agreements like COMESA, GAFTA, AGADIR, the EU-Egypt Association Agreement, and the Egypt-Türkiye Free Trade Agreement. These agreements reduce tariffs and facilitate access to African markets, boosting exports and attracting cross-border investments, making Egypt a key hub for the food and beverages sector.
