Only the Best in Quality for IPS-Ingredis' Strawberry IQF

5 Feb 2018

Strawberry is the most widely-adapted ‘small fruit’ across the world, due to its extensive commercial use in a range of different industries and applications, including beverage, dairy, bakery and confectionery.

Strawberries need moderate to hot climate conditions in order to develop and mature at the optimum crop level. It is a short-day plant which generally requires 10 days of 8 hours (or less) exposure to sunlight in order to initiate the flowering process. This type of climate is present in Egypt for most of the year – providing sufficient cultivation parameters to yield high quality strawberries during the crop season.

The agricultural landscape plays a key role in influencing the crop yield – as sandy terrain, with less greenery, provides the most suitable conditions for growth due to the soil conditions. The soil should be free of salt, nematode, fungi and insecticide with a pH level of 6.5-7.5, as characterized by that of Egypt’s terrain. Due to the presence of such favorable conditions – Egypt has become the second most important exporter of high quality strawberries worldwide.



Current Market Insights

Overall, the Egyptian strawberry harvest is set to increase in volume by 30%. At the beginning of the season (January), the Egyptian strawberries were more expensive due to a lack of supply. Furthermore, the implementation of strict legislation by the Egyptian government over the seasonal period (in an effort to reinforce food quality, hygiene and safety) led to many export suppliers requiring additional certification – which prompted a further reduction in available stock.
