As one of the major access points in Africa which relies on the huge volume of imports in the country for its own consumption to cater to over 40 million consumers the country is a key supplier to the neighbouring landlocked regions as well. 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.

The 22nd edition of the event also attracts a number of the industry’s biggest names including experts, stake-holders, directors and other high profile decision makers making it the ideal platform which supports the African growth story. FOODAGRO remains a major hub for business transactions and development in Africa, annually due to its proven track record in the region. Over the 3 days the event is expected to bring the newest and most innovative products in the food, hotel and agriculture industry from around the world, directly to Africa.
