In Brazil, two containers loaded with 28 tonnes of Egyptian grapes have been received at the country's ports, reports the Newswire media. According to the port authorities, this is the first order listed for this fruit from Egypt.
In fact, Brazil, which generally imports very few grapes, is now forced to increase its purchases of the fruit on the international market due to bad weather conditions which have affected a large part of its harvest.
Through this transaction, the South American country is added to the list of many outlets for the Egyptian grape industry, including the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom, Russia and Saudi Arabia.
In 2021, Egypt earned more than $254 million in revenue from its grape shipments according to data compiled on the Trade map platform.
