ELMENS Initiative to Highlight 100% Egyptian Products

EG100100

 It’s no secret that currently the Egyptian economy is not doing very well… at all.
Hopefully, the recent radical decisions taken by the government, and the Central Bank of Egypt will slowly rectify the damage. Well, they’d better do, because these recent reforms have been unpopular with most people. The restrictions on importation, the higher taxes, and the inflexibility of overseas spending have had many people (and businesses) steaming with fury.

 The government is saying that these decisions are a necessary evil, at the least for the time being. We, at “EL MENS” believe in taking a positive stance. More importantly, we believe in Egypt’s ability to overcome obstacles – we know; it sounds a bit cheesy, but we really do…

 That’s why we’re launching the #EG100100 initiative. Many people would like to buy Egyptian products, whether willingly – in order to assist the economy, or unwillingly – because imported products are becoming increasingly-expensive. No matter which camp you belong to, you might want to ditch many imported products, but you don’t know that Egyptian alternatives even exist.

 That’s where we come in; in the coming period of time we intend to shed some light on products that are 100% Egyptian (Masry 100 fi el 100). It doesn’t matter if it’s produced by a huge local industrial giant, or a small family-owned business; if it’s 100% Egyptian, it deserves our (and your) attention.

 However, no matter how hard we research the subject, we will never be able to point out to the vast array of available products. That’s where you guys come in. If you know a product that’s 100% Egyptian and that happens to be excellent (or 100 100), just post about it in the social medium of your choice, while including #Egyptian100100 in your post. We will find your post via the hashtag, and then share it on our website, and social media to increase awareness for as many local products as possible.

 Of course, everything has to start somewhere; so here are the first products that deserve the #EG100100 hashtag in no particular order:

1- Isis for Food Industries

  1. […] The king of all Sohour foods; one cup of yogurt contains up to 85% water content, in addition to the other nutritional benefits, like good bacteria for your gut and calcium for your bones. For maximum impact, add fruits to yogurt as they are filled with water and help you retain it over the next day. Support Egyptian products and buy Domty or Juhayna (check our previous initiative).
