The independent establishment of control and coordination of exports “Morocco Foodex” organized, Friday in London, a promotional action for the British market.
Held around the theme “Morocco, Kingdom of Taste”, this event made it possible to present the potential of the Moroccan offer and to underline its geographical proximity and its ability to react to British demand.
The director of Morocco Foodex, Ghita El Ghorfi, thus highlighted the growing figures of Moroccan exports which today exceed 3.5 million tonnes, of which 2.2 million are made up of fruits and vegetables, 800,000 tonnes of fish products and some 550,000 tonnes of processed agricultural products.
More than 281,000 tons were exported to the British market in 2021, detailed Ms. El Ghorfi, specifying that until the end of October 2022, exports from Morocco to the United Kingdom increased by 11% compared to the same month of last year. For his part, the president of the British Chamber of Commerce in Morocco, Stephen Orr, pointed out that “there are great possibilities for complementarity” between Morocco and the United Kingdom, particularly in the agricultural field where transfers of technologies can be realized on both sides. While emphasizing the extent of Moroccan investments in renewable energies which, according to him, will contribute to further developing the industrial sector, Mr. Orr noted that the new port, which should be built in Dakhla, will contribute to further increase the trade between the two countries.
