Egypt has started a new project to use solar energy to dry fruits

The "Menez" project for drying fruits with clean solar energy is an initiative to support housewives in earning money while fulfilling their family responsibilities


The project began in 2012 with the goal of providing healthy food made from dried fruits that retain their natural ingredients and benefits while avoiding the use of preservatives or additives for flavor, color, and smell. It also provides excellent job opportunities for women, particularly in rural areas.


Natural fruits are, of course, the best when they are in season, but drying allows the presence of fruits in the off-season while maintaining the same nutritional value, and their small size due to the disposal of water, easy to carry in the travel without exposure to corruption with ease of storage, as for the taste does not differ much except in the lack of water in it, as it resembles dried fruits such as dried figs and dried raisins, with the ability to dry all kinds of fruits.


So far, the project has one production line, the workplace is in the same village as the women, and they can walk to work since they work for 4 hours from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., which does not interfere with the woman's time with her family because this is the best time when the sun is suitable. Also because the drying mechanism does not work well after this time, the project focuses on women in particular, where the woman can work and provide healthy food for her children while also earning an income.


Also, one of the project's benefits is that it makes use of everything. Fruit peels can be buried, while the seeds and kernels are used in other industries, and some of the remains are fed to birds. Apple vinegar is also made, and with all of these benefits, we hope that awareness of the importance of dried fruits will spread, as well as optimal food use.
