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 also acts 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 has 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 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 even grander with several new facets added to the event.
FOODAGRO remains a major hub for business transactions and development in Africa, due to its experience and proven track record. 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. Foodagro also attracts a number of the industry’s biggest names including experts, stake-holders, directors and other high profile decision makers that makes Foodagro the ideal entry-way into the African economy for interested investors.
