The slow recovery from COVID-19 worldwide accelerates Meyer‘s sales performance in Europe and Africa. During the last five months this year, the sales amount of small grain color sorters in Europe and Africa reaches 20 million RMB, which is 40 percent volume growth compared to the same period in 2020. Almost 100 Meyer sorting machines were shipped to European and African countries to make high benefits for customers.
Back in 2011 when Meyer started its business in Europe, the first sold machine successfully went into operation in Greece. It unveiled Meyer's market in Europe. In the next years, Meyer sold more machines to the Commonwealth of Independent States and Western Europe. Numerous fields like rice, small grains and the X-ray inspection industry witness Meyer machines' excellent sorting performance and stable operation.
In 2011, Meyer entered the rice industry in Egypt. In 2014, the Meyer sales team risked the Ebola virus entering West African and pioneered the cashew color soring industry. In 2015, Meyer opened more countries even few people know, like Burkina Faso, Togo and Mauritania, to conduct market research and development there. The sales volume of the African market increases from an initial 3 million RMB to today's 20 million RMB per year. Meyer has been heading step by step in the land of Africa.
