Jordan food industry witnessed 8% export growth in 2019

The Kingdom’s food industry sector accounts for 52 per cent of the local market share, contributing to food security and boosting the engines of growth, according to a representative of the Food Sector at the Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI).

The sector’s adherence to the global standards and specifications, alongside its implementation of the international frameworks for food safety, led to an 8 per cent growth in Jordanian exports in 2019, Muhammad Jitan said in a JCI statement sent to The Jordan Times on Saturday.
