Al Mal:
Uganda has made its maiden beef export to Egypt shipping 50 tonnes of the commodity to the Middle Eastern country, according to Daily Monitor Newspaper.
The consignment, which is equivalent to 50,000 kilogrammes, was the first batch from the Egypt-Uganda Food Security Company situated north of Kampala in Luweero District. The company has been undergoing two years of development.

In a statement, Mr Sherif el-Kallini, the Egypt-Uganda Food Security Company chief executive officer, said Ugandan meat stands a better opportunity because of its high quality.
The shipment has been a culmination of three agreements that President Museveni signed with Egyptian leader Abdel Fatah al-Sisi during a visit to Cairo last May.

President Museveni inaugurated the Egypt-Uganda Food Security Company in 2016, as one of Africa’s largest slaughterhouse.
He underscored the need for Uganda to export its beef products, arguing that it would be the preferred choice because it is produced from organically fed livestock.
