Egypt to set up its 1st gelatin factory with Germany's help

Egyptian Trade and Industry Minister Tareq Qabil had talks on Thursday with a delegation from Germany company's GELITA - the world's leading supplier of collagen proteins for the food, health and nutrition, and pharmaceutical industries – means of establishing Egypt's first  factory for manufacturing and producing gelatin.

The German company expressed interest in establishing the factory in Robiki leather city.

The minister noted that the project will also be the first for the Germany company in the Middle East.

The project is meant to magnify the benefit from wastes of tanning leather which can be used in manufacturing gelatin.

He underlined the importance of the project at the economic level as the gelatin material is a major component of several food and pharmaceutical companies.

The factory will cater for local market needs of the gelatin material in lieu of importing it.

The German company has 21 production lines in 13 states worldwide, including the US, Mexico, China and South Africa.

Qabil underlined the government's keenness on accelerating economic growth, especially through improving the investment climate.

Within this context, the government has amended several business laws, topped by the new investment law.

GELITA's Chief Operating Officer (COO) Michael Van said the company will conduct a feasibility study on the project, noting that the company was interested in investing in Egypt. 

He added that the factory's production capacity will stand at 300,000-400,000  tons annually.

He lauded the progress realized in Robiki city, noting that all needed raw materials will be available in this city.
