UNIDO - Medicinal and Aromatic Plants project (EFTA)

15.10.2010 - 30.06.2016

This project contributes with US$ 2.85 million over a period of 4 years in order to enhance the Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAP) sector in Egypt through a vertically integrated approach. For many years Egypt has been producing and exporting MAP products (herbs and spices). However, the Egyptian MAP sector suffers from limited capacity to produce in terms of quality and safety standards, lack of professional advisory services, in addition to a highly fragmented and underdeveloped supply chain. These factors negatively affect the position of Egyptian MAP products both in the local and export markets and consequently the ability to increase production of high value products in addition to weakening the bargaining power of Egyptian producers and exporters. This has a negative effect on the potential for income and employment generation.

The project aims at raising the position, competitiveness and safety of Egyptian MAP products in export markets and at developing its entire local supply chain. Thus, it will be based on an integrated development approach composed of three pillars: 1) Quality enforcement- 2) Product development- 3) Access to exports markets.

Under the SFFP Phase I FLO has undergone a comprehensive Strategic Review process which led to a revised strategic Model for Fairtrade globally.

The second phase of the SFFP (2010-2013) aims at reaching the objectives identified in the the strategic model developed under phase I, namely: Strengthening the global Fairtrade system- Broadening the scope of Fairtrade- and Deepening the impact of Fairtrade. In addition to the support of the SFFP II, resources are allocated to Swiss Fairtrade to support fair trade information and sensitization activities in Switzerland (according to the federal councils Label Strategy- IdaRio 2000).
