According to data tracked by Billionaires.Africa, Berzi’s stake in Edita Food has increased by EGP370.05 million ($7.78 million) over the past 11 days. This surge has been fueled by the recent uptick in the company’s shares on the Egyptian Exchange, reflecting investor optimism and confidence in the brand’s trajectory.
