The Adfina factory, located in Izbet El Burj, Damietta, was founded in 1960 during the reign of the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser. His goal was to capitalize on the city of Ezbet El Burj, which is the largest fishing fleet in Egypt, as fish caught in the Mediterranean are used, processed, packaged and sold.
The factory area of the Business Sector Holding Company is about 11,000 square meters, which has three fish powder production plants, one for ice production and the other for fish production and packaging.
The factory has 7 refrigerators for food preservation, for each refrigerator 500 tons. Its maintenance depends on the availability of refrigeration presses, the cost of which is one million pounds sterling.
The factory has not been in operation for many years, and its machines are in a state of disrepair, since not a single line has been updated since its inception in the sixties.
The factory was famous for its production of canned sardines and tuna from Mediterranean alpaco fish, as it used to produce 4 tons of salmon, sardines, juices, frozen vegetables and canned meats daily. A fish dish.
