The Minister of Supply & International Trade stated that Egyptian farmers are expected to supply an additional 2mn tons of wheat in the next harvest season. This would bring the total local supply to 5.5mn tons, an increase of 57% from 2021. The increase in production comes in light of constrained exports from two of Egypt’s key suppliers, Ukraine and Russia, amid the conflict between the two countries. Egyptians rely heavily on bread in their diet, and wheat is considered one of the most strategic staples in the country. Egypt is the largest wheat importer in the world, relying on 14 countries for wheat imports.
