FAO and Nibulon, Ukrainian grain exporter, have signed a partnership agreement on increasing the efficiency of producing, storing, and transporting grain in Egypt, an effort that will definitely help strengthen food security.
UN-affiliated Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and Nibulon, a Ukrainian company with over 25 years of experience in the field of grain production, storage, transportation and export, signed a partnership to focus on improving the efficiency of Egyptian companies involved in grain production, storage and transportation. Abdessalam Ould Ahmed, FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for the Near East and North Africa, and Oleksiy Vadatursky, CEO and co-owner of Nibulon, have shaken hands in Cairo.
“This agreement is another impressive step in the efforts to scale up FAO’s work towards eradicating hunger and improving the food security situation in the region,” Ould Ahmed stated. “There’s room for improvement and more work is needed to improve grain storage, transportation, sampling and testing to benefit the people in Egypt and its neighbouring countries,” Ould Ahmed stressed.
Vadatursky pointed out the need to act in tackling malnutrition and hunger, which “should not have a place in the world we all live in. Nibulon, as a responsible Ukrainian grain producer and a reliable exporter, shares FAO’s vision of zero hunger.”
Nibulon has exported grain to more than 60 countries and exported more than 747 thousand tons of wheat under the tenders of the UN’s World Food Program since 2009.FAO aims to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030.
