“This is one of the most important milestones for the company in 2023”, says Ignacio Vidales, Sales Manager at Salix Fruits, and comments: “In the last years, we saw a consistent increase in the offer and demand of citrus from Egypt. It has always been very competitive in terms of price in the North Hemisphere, but know that competitiveness has also arisen in their quality. We believe it is key for our future to open an office in this location to be close to our growers to fulfill the growing demand of our customer base around the world”.
