Following a successful launch in May 2015, one of the region’s largest food trade exhibitions, the 2016 edition of Food Africa has been confirmed for 4th-7th of May at Cairo International Convention Centre.
Responding to the continent’s growing food and beverages industry, Food Africa brings together wholesalers, distributors, retailers and other industry professionals for a four-day showcase that aims to address the different needs of both buyers and importers, as well as serve new markets in Egypt and the continent by forming and renewing channels.
The one-of-a-kind expo offers a vast space for exhibitor’s to showcase their products and, in the grander scheme of things, enable communication with other retailers and distributors in the field with a view to empowering their brands with new partnerships that guarantee a strong presence in a market that is worth up to USD 3.3 billion annually.
With 241 exhibitors and 8340 visitors from 19 countries,Food Africa 2015 was not only a success to its organizer, IFP, but proved to be just as fruitful to exhibitors. More than just a congregation of booths & pavilions,the expo also hosted a number of conferences that discussed relevant pressing topics as well as the challenges that the sector faces, including production and processing, as well as international food quality and safety standards.
The expo has been received so emphatically by all quarters, in fact, that it has even caught the attention of Italian trade event organizers, Cesena Fiera and IFEMA, who specialize in agri-food solutions and are in talks with IFP about launching a similar expo series in the Middle East to introduce the world to more MENA and African producers as the sector continues steady, solid growth.
