TNA revolutionises potato product supply for the Egyptian Army



TNA solutions, a global leader in integrated food processing and packaging solutions, has implemented a ground-breaking project for the Egyptian Army. Tasked by the Egyptian National Services Projects Organisation (NSPO) in 2020, TNA has delivered two cutting-edge complete production lines for potato products

Specifically designed for Hash Browns and Rosti, the first line is capable of producing two metric tonnes per hour, while the second line, dedicated to French Fries, wedges and disks, produces up to 10 metric tonnes per hour. Production efficiency is maximised as TNA provides every element of the production process, from potato washing and de-stoning to packing products in bags. In addition, TNA’s unrivalled expertise has enabled the integration of state-of-the-art distribution and arctic packaging systems, specifically tailored for frozen potato products.


TNA demonstrates project management capabilities, delivering two high-capacity potato lines to Egypt’s premier national organisation NSPO: one for Hash Browns and Rosti, another for French Fries and wedges.


In collaboration with Optima Solutions, formerly Getec Partners LLC, TNA secured this prestigious contract to support the Egyptian Ministry of Defence in achieving self-sufficiency in meeting the needs of the armed forces, the local markets, and export products. TNA’s industry-leading reputation for delivering exceptional projects solidified its position as the chosen partner. The project was a true testament to the dedication of TNA’s solutions specialists and global team of experts.


The Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, championed an inaugural ceremony at the factory, at which he emphasised unwavering commitment to advancing the industrial landscape in Egypt, simultaneously advocating for the preservation and protection of the environment and the implementation of eco-friendly factory designs. Thiago Roriz, TNA’s Chief Operations Officer, was invited to address the gathering. On behalf of TNA’s founders, including co-founder & Director, Nadia Taylor, who takes immense pride in her Egyptian heritage, Thiago expressed heartfelt gratitude to the President and reaffirmed TNA's commitment to supporting the venture and sharing its unparalleled expertise in potato production: “TNA is a leading provider of potato production lines – having supplied more than 14,000 systems across 120 countries globally. We are proud to have an opportunity to support this project and to offer expertise in food processing and packaging to deliver the highest possible quality.”


TNA’s cutting-edge machinery, state-of-the-art technology and extensive process experience empowered the company to deliver the two complete lines on schedule, ensuring the efficient production of premium worldwide quality products while adhering to energy consumption, CO2 emissions and other sustainability related goals. Thiago continued: “TNA is immensely proud and honoured to be an integral part of this project. We extend our sincere appreciation to President El-Sisi, the Egyptian government, and our trusted strategic partner, Optima Solutions, for making this resounding success possible.”



The completion of both production lines in June 2023 marks the beginning of a transformative era. Discussions are already underway to expand operations to include new potato products, sweet potatoes and the processing of various agricultural products. As TNA continues to spearhead innovation, its new solutions are set to reshape the potato processing industry, improving efficiency, quality and sustainability.
