Potatoes export is one of elHafez main business activities. For many years we have exported our Egyptian potatoes to different countries all over the world, for the consumption market, for use in the potato processing industry or other specialized markets such as pre-packing, bakers or home made French fries as some examples.
With our know-how, committed comprehensive supplier base and hands on approach, we are able to help customers choose the correct variety to suit their needs and the most appropriate method of transport to be used.
Export potatoes are normally transported in any one of the following ways:
- Sea shipping
- Air cargo
- Land shipping
There are different potato varieties such as Red Russeta, Spunta, Nicola and Diamante. The differences in texture, flavor and shape make each variety suitable to its own particular method of cooking. There are 10-12 readily available main varieties grown in Egypt, however, there are many varieties that have limited or localized supply.
The most frequently used Incoterms are: FOB, FAS, CFR or CIF.
