Cairo – Juhayna Food Industries has signed a contract with KarmSolar, Egypt's largest private solar utility company, to establish a central plant to generate and sell power using solar panels, diesel generators, and industrial batteries at Al-Enmaa Farm in Abu Minqar area in New Valley.

During a recent press conference, CEO of KarmSolar, Ahmed Zahran, said that investments in phase one of the project are estimated at EGP 130 million, revealing that total investments of the entire project could reach up to EGP 500 million during a period from four to five years.
