As it stands, Lebanon has over 4,700 registered industrial firms, which exported products valued at USD 2.61 billion in 2017. One-quarter of these belong to the agro-food sub-sector, making it the country’s second biggest export. There are around 1,400 agro-food companies constituting the largest share of total industrial firms, with more than 45 percent of these located in Mount Lebanon and engaged in the production of dairy, confectionary, dried fruits and nuts, baked goods, olive oil and wine. Though these figures are quite promising, Lebanon and local F&B producers face the risk of serious regional competition. However, a number of solutions awaiting approval could limit and even eliminate the threat.
