Papyrus Australia recently hosted the Australian Ambassador to Egypt, Glenn Miles at the Papyrus Egypt Sohag factory.
During the visit, the Ambassador met with Papyrus Australia Managing Director, Ramy Azer, who took the Ambassador on a factory tour to explain and demonstrate the Papyrus technology firsthand.
During the visit, Ramy also took the opportunity to explain to the Ambassador the main purpose of commercialising our technology in Egypt, as a representative case study for developing countries (the countries which almost exclusively grow banana). This enables the technology to be ready for deployment in regional banana growing areas in developing countries around the world.
The Papyrus Australian technology was developed in Australia with the help of multiple Government grants, especially Research & Development grants. Australia – an anomaly as a developed country with a significant banana growing industry – is our origin and home. Papyrus will deploy its technology in Australia as well, to reap the benefits of reducing waste, logging, and carbon emissions, displacing plastics and saving water and electricity.
