Cubii Systems provides automated processing and packaging machinery for small food product factories. There are literally thousands of these factories around Egypt, and they act the main source of food products such as dairy, canned foods, etc. for most of the inhabitants of Egypt’s villages.

Their plan is to market these solutions more broadly, through an awareness campaign, and to eventually bring the production of these solutions in-house.
