The contest aims to promote and preserve Egypt’s local foods.

Cairo- Dec 31, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has announced the launch of the “National Contest for Typical Products”, in cooperation with the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), during the period from Feb 6 to Feb14.

“The competition is the best method to present and preserve Egyptian cuisine, which would contribute to the economic development of the sector’s indigenous regions, especially rural areas,” Gamea said, referring to similar successful experiences in Switzerland, Tunisia and Morocco.

The move, she added, aims to promote Egyptian local foods, create job opportunities for producers and suppliers of the industry, and boost export levels, in addition to linking the two sectors of food industries and tourism through organizing tourist trips to explore the characteristic foods of each governorate.  

Registration is open through the Industrial Modernization Center or online at
