Egypt, 14 December, 2010
In September 2010, Cotecna Inspection Egypt Laboratory (C.I.E. Lab) in Alexandria was certified to issue analysis certificates for grain under the Grain and Feed Trade Association’s Approved Analysts Scheme. www.gafta.com
Cotecna Egypt carries out inspections, verifications, examinations, and, as a GAFTA certified laboratory, quality and condition assessment of grains traded on GAFTA contract terms. Cotecna Egypt may issue reports and certificates relating to its operations and can render advisory services.
Cotecna’s Alexandria laboratory near the Dekheila port, the largest grain receiving port in Egypt and the Middle East, is the only GAFTA analysis accredited laboratory in the Middle East outside Israel. Cotecna Egypt’s laboratory services will be expanded to cover a wide range of analysis to meet demands of local and international clients who will no longer need to send samples abroad for analysis.
Cotecna Egypt is registered at Egypt’s General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC) and works on behalf of GASC in the country of origin performing analysis for wheat and edible oils. Egypt’s population has one of the highest wheat per capita consumption level in the world and wheat is one of the country’s main imports.
