Agriculture is the foundation of Ethiopia's economy and accounts for about 50% of the GDP, 84% of exports and 80% of total employment. This has contributed in making the food processing sector not only the largest manufacturing industry in the country but also one that offers top opportunities for investment.
FOODAGRO AFRICA - Africa's largest International Food & Agriculture exhibition, aims to tap this huge investment potential with the launch of FOODAGRO ETHIOPIA, to be held at The Millennium Hall, Addis Ababa, from 23 - 25 September, 2021. After 22 successful editions in Kenya and Tanzania, the event promises to bring together industry professionals, exporters, manufacturers and importers, all under one roof in one of Africa's fastest growing economies, Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is one of the most populous countries in Africa and with a population of about 90 million, offers a huge market for processed food products. It is also the leading producer in Africa of many agricultural products. The current import trend and growing consumer interest also implies opportunities for investment in food products that have a potential role for import substitution and improvement of the trade balance.
With an exciting line-up of both local and international companies, FOODAGRO ETHIOPIA 2021 provides an ideal platform for product launches, finding new buyers & distributors, promoting brand names, updating existing customers and updating oneself with the latest trends in the food, agriculture and hotel industry.
