Presently, the Egyptian Government and private sector are convinced of the potential of date production and are striving to establish commercial date plantations and promote viable date production.
The rising consumption of dates and its incorporation in the commercial processing industry is likely to drive the market towards growth. Moreover, strategic policies made by the agricultural associations and the government coupled with technological advancements will further strengthen the Egypt’s position in the international dates market.

Key Market Trends
Improved Government Measures Towards Palm Date Cultivation
There has been consistent focus from the government to increase the palm tree plantation with new varieties across the country to meet the international demands, as a part of country’s strategic step towards the development of the date industry. To combat the palm affecting pests and diseases, government with the help of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) laid foundation for the first palm date cluster which helped El-Edwa’s date farmers tackle the infestation of red palm weevils, a pest with devastating effects on palm tree health and date production.
The Ministry of Agriculture is promoting community ownership of date palms through awareness and strengthening of planning and management committees by providing leadership skills training. Likewise, education centers are established to train the bene?ciaries who obtain loans and produce at home, especially women.
In 2017, technical program initiated by Egyptian Ministries of Agriculture was launched to develop the date value chain in Egypt, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations launched a training program for date producers in Siwa, Al Wahat Al Bahria, and Al Wadi al-Jadid. The agricultural authorities are also working on providing the post-harvest facilities to the stakeholders and taking measures to improve the trade procedures for Egypt’s contribution towards International Market of Dates.
Egypt- The Largest Date Producing Countries in World
Egypt holds the first place among the top date producing countries worldwide. It has a good potential of producing semi dry varieties (especially Sewi and the variety “Medjool”) suitable for export in the international market. Date palm cultivation in Egypt is gaining importance, due to its potential role in enhancing food/nutrition security and the increased level of income in the rural areas.
Despite being the leading producer, it does not play an in?uential role in the global trade of the fruit. This is because the date palm sector in Egypt faces several problems, like low fruit quality, diseases and pathogen pests (particularly red palm weevil), the weakness of marketing services, and neglect of farmers in achieving ef?cient postharvest processes. Contrary to this, the improvements in the date palm industry are being done by the government. The government is focusing on developing a value chain for dates in Egypt, in order to facilitate a rational use of water to enhance production (per unit area), as well as help in crop diversification, land reclamation, combating the negative impacts of desertification.
According to the data revealed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Egypt had about 15 million palm trees by the end of 2018. Moreover, the ministry aims to cultivate additional 2.5 million palm trees by using modern agricultural methods in the future, in order to improve the cultivation of dates for the domestic consumption, as well as to improve the trade export.
