Egypt’s IS EG Halal starts operations in India through local office

Egypt is happy to facilitate and even welcome 100% meat import from India

Indian meat exporters have a significant opportunity to increase their share in overall meat export to Egypt, even to 100 per cent from the current 75-80 per cent, Weal Mohamed Awad Hamed, the ambassador of Egypt to India said at a function held in New Delhi.

“My understanding is that Indian meat in Egypt is approximately now between 75 and 80 per cent. We do hope that you will want to increase the meat trade to 85 per cent, to 90 per cent, 100 per cent, but if you are willing to go to 100 per cent Egypt will extend all support,” said, Weal Mohamed Awad Hamed.

During the event, IS EG Halal, the only entity exclusively authorised by the Government of Egypt to certify Halal exports worldwide, announced the starting of operations in India through their local office Halal Market India to certify all meat products from India to Egypt as we open the market to expand the trading between India and Egypt.

“When the Prime Minister was in Egypt in June 2023, one of the issues that both countries have agreed to cooperate on is in the field of food security. 99 per cent of the Egypt population are non-vegetarian and therefore meat is an important part of food security. ISEG Halal Egypt the only authorised entity that certifies Halal products to Egypt will be opening their new office under the name of Halal Market in India to help Indian exporters,” he added.

Egyptian Embassy announced in the presence of APEDA officials that the Halal Market part of ISEG will now operate in India to certify Halal to all the meat products being exported to Egypt.

Dr Gasser Elsayed, CEO, of Halal Market India stated that new operations or Halal Certification will have no facilitation fees, only the announced price list from the authorities in Egypt will be applied and there will be no limitations for exporting to any traders in Egypt.
