PT Kans Agro Indonesia will export 25 tons of cocoa powder to Egypt through a contract worth IDR 717 million signed with A to Z for Import & Export on March 27, 2023.

Indonesian Ambassador Lutfi Rauf conveyed his gratitude to Egyptian businesspersons for selecting Indonesia as their source of imported cocoa powder products.

“As the Head of the RI Representative in Egypt, I give my greatest appreciation for the loyalty and trust of Egyptian buyers in importing Indonesia’s superior products and hope that Indonesian business actors can provide guarantees and assurance that the quality of cocoa powder products exported to Egypt is of the best quality,” said Lutfi in a written statement from Kemlu.go.id.

Hopefully, it would continue

Trade Attache Muhammad Syahran Bhakti hoped that this trade between Indonesia and Egypt would continue.

“It is hoped that this cooperation in the export of cocoa powder products can last a long time with an ever-increasing transaction value,” Syahran said.

“I believe that even though the global recession hit the world and also affected Egypt, it would not discourage Egypt from importing cocoa powder products from Indonesia.” he continued.

Director of PT Kans Agro Indonesia Amirullah Kandu conveyed his appreciation for the Indonesian Embassy in Cairo’s support and the trust of Egyptian buyers.

“We promised to maintain the trust by delivering high-quality cocoa powder products that meet the standards set in Egypt and implementing a halal policy mechanism,” Amirullah said.

A to Z Director for Import & Export Mahmoud Ibrahim Awadh Ibrahim also welcomes the opportunity for business collaboration.

Mahmoud also hoped that the import of cocoa powder products can take place in a sustainable manner, and be able to meet the needs of the cocoa market in Egypt.

“The market in Egypt continues to prioritize affordable prices and adherence to quality standards for products. A to Z for Import & Export is prepared to fulfill Indonesia’s demand for various products, including agricultural and fruit products required from Egypt.” Mahmoud said.

In the period of January to December 2022, Egypt imported cocoa powder worth USD 63.60 million from different countries.
