An Update on Egypt’s Oils & Fats Imports: January to February 2016
by Zainuddin Hassan
Egypt's production of edible vegetable oils has not recorded any significant growth since 2010. According to the study by the department of Agricultural Economy, National Research Centre (NRC), during the early sixties Egypt used to be self-sufficient in the production of edible vegetable oils, where self-sufficiency ratio reached 90%. Since then, the self-sufficiency ratio followed a declining trend reaching as low as 22% in 2014, which led to the increasing volume of edible oil imports which reached 1.9 Mn tonnes in 2014.

With over 90% of the country being desert and not suitable for agriculture, the area of cultivated land per head of 0.05ha is among the lowest in the world. This means that Egypt will remain reliant on imports of edible oils.
