Top managers of Demeter Egypt\EBDA and GroPro have met this January in Cairo to finalise the agreement details.

And we want to become an active agent of the promoting bio-ag solutions and IPM on the Egyptian market, sharing our expertise and knowledge with local farmers in partnership with the EBDA,” commented GroPro's representative.

This agreement comes as part of GroPro's efforts to expand collaborations on the Egyptian market. According to this agreement, GroPro and the EBDA will plan to launch educational and marketing programs for Egyptian farmers.

The organisation's tasks are to provide knowledge, expertise, and experience to defend the interests of organic producers and assist the total growth of the organic market.

“As a company that supports sustainability goals, we fully support the development of the organic movement in Egypt. We aim to share our expertise with Egyptian producers on all stages of crop production value-chain and provide them our inputs and services to maximise the profitability,” commented James Lamoureaux, GroPro's CEO.
