Expanding domestic and international trade of Egyptian products through food safety
With a history of food safety issues in the country, the Government of Egypt (GOE) has established the National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) to control and regulate food in Egypt. TAIB will work in close collaboration with NFSA and other key stakeholders to ensure a successful transition to a modern food safety system.
We will provide technical support to NFSA to regulate food across Egypt and promote greater U.S. export and investment opportunities. The three main objectives are to: enhance organizational capacity of NFSA, develop workforce training for NFSA and promote improved policy and regulatory frameworks.
We will combine nearly 40 years of U.S.-funded international agriculture development knowledge with the food safety and regulatory affairs prowess of our affiliate, Land O’Lakes, Inc., a $14 billion Minnesotabased agribusiness.
We will be joined by the Michigan-based International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI), a premier trainer of food protection professionals at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and USDFA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), a proven implementor of capacity-building approaches in global emerging economies.
