Food security is considered a top priority for all countries and institutions, said Supply and Internal Trade Minister Ali el Moseilhy.

The minister's remarks came during his participation Monday in the second annual conference of the chamber of food industries, which is held under the rubric "Sustainability and increasing investment in the food industries". 

Delivering a speech during the conference, the minister said that the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian crisis cast a spotlight on the imbalance in the global food security, which is entirely dependent on the notion of globalization and the supply chains. 

The minister, meanwhile, said that during his recent visit to Italy he noticed that there was a link between the food industries and the agricultural plan. 

He further said that the storage capacities of silos in Egypt have been increased from 1.2 million tons in 2014 to 3.4 million tons in order to decrease the wastage along the wheat value chain, which reached at one point up to 10 percent.
