Since its beginnings as a 30-hectare olive grove in 1986, Wadi Food Industries, a local success story, now has 930 hectares devoted to the production of organic food products, including olive products, sauces, vinegars and fresh produce. With more than 100 healthy and high-end products, the company is the proud supplier of olive oil and table olives to Egyptian five-star hotels and restaurants. The company has become a leading exporter of olive products to Canada, the USA, Europe and several MENA countries. In 2005, the company received the HACCP International Food Certificate for its extra-virgin olive oil, and received the distinguished Organic Agriculture Certificate, declaring all Wadi Food farms to be fully organic and all Wadi Food products to be 100% free of fertilizers and pesticides. It has been ISO-certified since 1999. In 2016, Wadi Food achieved a leap in sales by 40% in 2016, and it is currently targeting to export 10.2 thousand tons, or the equivalent of 60% of the total production during 2017.
