Welcome to AFMASS Conference & Expo - the Market Place of IdeasTM for the food, feed and hospitality industry in Africa.
Since 2015, the African Food Manufacturing & Safety Summit (AFMASS) Conference & Expo has been hosting business leaders from Africa and the World, changing the nature of food and beverage industry focused events in the region.
AFMASS Conference & Expo is the regional trade event that brings together stakeholders in the food, feed and hospitality industries in sub-Saharan Africa to trade, network and learn the latest processing, packaging and food safety technologies and practices.
AFMASS Conference & Expo is unique for its blend of industry-defining conference sessions that give delegates the opportunity to be exposed to the latest trends and technologies, and critically, to grab ideas that they can implement when they get back to their businesses.
Nairobi - the gateway into sub-Saharan Africa
Driven by its location in Nairobi, Kenya, the gateway to sub-Saharan Africa's fast growing and changing food, feed and hospitality industry, AFMASS Conference & Expo provides a one-stop shop to learn, experience and take advantage of Africa's rising agro and food and hospitality economy in one venue and event.
Located at the business-friendly Visa Oshwal Centre within the Westlands suburb of Nairobi, AFMASS 2017 is expected to be attended by the key decision makers from the food, feed and hospitality industry in sub-Saharan Africa region; regional and international suppliers; Government regulatory officials; and NGOs involved in food and feed industry supply chain from sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
Region's first grains-focused conference stream
For the first time, the African Grains, Milling & Feed (AFGRAINS) Conference stream has been added to meet the specific needs of the grains, milling, baking and feed industry in Africa.
AFGRAINS becomes the first regular grains-focused conference that covers the vital and growing grains industry - covering the entire cereals, oilseeds and other grains.
The AFGRAINS conference stream is in addition to the AFMASS Conference that focuses on the dairy, beverages, fruit and veg, meat, sugar and candy, and other processed food products, plus the foodservice sector.
At the AFMASS and AFGRAINS Conferences, leading opinion leaders shall discuss the latest technologies, practices, trends and regulations in Africa's food, feed and hospitality industry, with topics ranging from nutrition, processing, packaging, food and feed safety, sustainability, post-harvest management and commodity markets, among others.
Industry-focused Exhibition Hall
The Exhibition Hall, which is in close proximity to the conference halls, provides sponsors and exhibitors with the right platform to interact with delegates, visitors and other stakeholders at the event, enabling trade to thrive as the event rolls on.
Delegates at the conferences have at least 4 hours per day to spend time at the Expo Hall, including during breakfast, health breaks and lunch breaks - ensuring that they do not miss on going through the Expo Hall to meet suppliers of key inputs, equipment, packaging and other industry solutions.
At the exhibition floor, visitors and delegates will have a unique opportunity to meet local, regional and international suppliers of the latest:
- post-harvest, processing and packaging solutions
- laboratory equipment and solutions;
- ingredients and chemicals;
- packaging materials and supplies;
- food and beverage products;
- and essential services that meet the unique needs of the food, feed and hospitality industry in Africa.
Industry leaders get recognised and rewarded
The 2017 edition will have an extra addition to it, ensuring that AFMASS continues to build its profile as the ultimate industry trade show and conference.
The Food Business Africa Industry Excellence Awards will be held during the event, with the 2017 edition, the first of these annual awards, celebrating those who have made critical contributions to the food, beverages, milling, foodservice and feed industry in the region in the Industry Champions awards category, before expanding the award ceremony from the 2018 version of AFMASS Conference & Exhibition.
