"It was four years before Sekem began exporting medicinal herbs and spices and two more years before its organic food came to market. It’s been expanding and developing its range of products ever since, with annual growth over the last few years of between 20 and 25 per cent.
In 2007 Sekem, working with a regional network of 800 farmers, had sales of over 200 million Egyptian pounds (Dh138 million) and a net profit of over 12 million pounds. It could have made a lot more profit but that’s the key to the Sekem enterprise – it has never been just about the produce.
In praise of Egyptian organic export farming. Does anyone know about this company, SEKEM?
