FOODAGRO AFRICA returns for its 21st edition in 2018, with the food, hospitality and agriculture sectors set to take centre-stage once again. FOODAGRO AFRICA will run in three of Africa’s most promising economies: Foodagro Kenya between 4th -6th September 2018, Foodagro Tanzania between 25th-27th October 2018 and Foodagro Ethiopia 15th-17th November 2018.
The industry’s newest products will be on display, with over 200 exhibitors and thousands of buyers in attendance. The three day event will also feature sessions from industry experts, who will speak on the latest developments in the Food industry and the African markets.The continued support of the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture to Foodagro Africa will also act as a major attraction to potential investors.
The Food, Hospitality and Agriculture sectors are key to the future of the African continent and represent an immense market with great potential for investors internationally as well as locally. The importance of these sectors to Africa is reflected in the fact that 70 percent of the population draws employment directly from the Food, Hospitality and Agriculture Sectors. The food market in Africa is also projected to be worth a whooping USD 1 trillion by 2030, according to the World Bank.
“Kenya’s consumer market is poised for considerable expansion in the coming years, boosted by consistent GDP growth, a growing middle class with increased purchasing power and the development of new shopping malls and e-commerce portals.” says Mr. Daniels, Exhibition Manager - Expogroup.
FOODAGRO AFRICA ended on a very bright note last year with 100+ exhibitors and 4400+ visitors, representing 20 nations from around the globe, choosing the event to be its platform to launch their products into the vast markets in Africa. 10,000+ of the industry’s newest products were on display, and this year’s edition promises to be an even grander affair with several new facets added to the event.
FOODAGRO remains a major hub for business transactions and development in Africa, annually due to its proven track record in the region. The event will continue to bring the newest and most innovative products in the food, hotel and agriculture industry from around the world, directly to Africa. The 21st edition of the event will also attract a number of the industry’s biggest names including experts, stake-holders, directors and other high profile decision makers that makes it the ideal entry-way into the African economy for interested investors.
The future of food, hospitality and agriculture in Africa will be a key theme throughout the 2017 installment of FOODAGRO AFRICA, which will run from 2 – 4 June, 2017 in Kenya, 10 – 12 August 2017 in Tanzania and 12 – 14 May 2017 in Ethiopia. More than 200 + exhibitors will showcase their latest innovations to thousands of buyers and decision makers, all looking to place orders on the industry’s newest products. Visitors will also be able to hear from experts who will offer business support, advice and debate during the three-day events.
Food, hospitality and agriculture is one of the most important sectors of the African economy and is expected to be the driving force behind the alleviation of the continent’s poverty. It accounts for 65% of the continent’s employment and 75% of its domestic trade. The economies of most African countries are growing faster than anywhere else in the world and agriculture, which accounts for a third of Africa’s GDP, is poised to be the next step in the development of the region.
FOODAGRO AFRICA, Africa’s largest food, hospitality and agriculture exhibition, closed its door in July 2016 recording a further increase in the level of internationality on both the exhibitors and visitors side. Altogether, more than 150 exhibitors presented their latest products, machinery and food trends from over 20 countries around the world, with over 4800 business visitors in attendance.
The 2017 event promises to be even bigger and better with new features added to the show. As a proven platform for business transactions, the event will showcase the latest developments in the food, hotel and agriculture industry, with prominent industry experts, stakeholders and decision makers in attendance, making it an ideal event to source new products, network and usher in new contacts and business opportunities. Marking its 20th anniversary in the industry, Expogroup expands its ever growing presence in East Africa with the launch of FOODAGRO AFRICA in Ethiopia. Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and possesses huge potential for investors and businesses looking to tap the market. This coupled with a favorable business environment and sound infrastructure makes it an attractive option for international companies.
