Built at an estimate cost of US$200 million, Al-Fayrouz Fish Farming Project, is now the largest Aquaculture project in Africa. The farm is expected to produce over one million tons of fish and generate more than US$200 million in revenues in the next five years. The project is located on a 480-acre site in the coastal region of Fajr al-Fayrouz, east of Alexandria, Egypt.

The Women’s Farming Syndicate (WFS), founded in 2011, is an agribusiness community with a diverse membership from professionals to grass roots; a business constituency that has grown to over 5,000 women entrepreneurs across the country with key projects and programmes that include the Annual Women’s Showcase Market, the Weekly SMEs Market, and an eCommerce platform.
