The Africa Food Manufacturing & Safety Summit (AFMASS) Eastern Africa edition is the ultimate platform for key decision makers to trade, network and learn about the latest technologies and innovations in Eastern Africa’s industry.

AFMASS is Eastern Africa’s fastest growing food, beverage and milling industry trade conference and exhibition.

Delegates and visitors at past editions of AFMASS Eastern Africa have come from the 4 continents and over 40 countries in Africa, including Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Nigeria and others around the World.

Going into its fifth year, the event provides the most important route to Eastern and sub-Saharan Africa’s food & beverage, milling & feed and hospitality & foodservice industry.

Even though the event targets the industry players from Eastern African countries:

  • Kenya
  • Uganda
  • Tanzania
  • Rwanda
  • Burundi
  • Ethiopia
  • Somalia
  • Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
  • and other sub-Saharan African countries.

The event is well appreciated for the quality of visitors, delegates, speakers and panelists; the coverage of current issues and trends that resonate with the sector and the region; and the variety of local, regional and international brands that continue to use the event to reach into the region’s industry with their products and services at the well-attended Exhibitions.

The theme for the AFMASS Eastern Africa edition 2019 is: SUSTAINABILITY: BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FOOD AND AGRICULTURE VALUE CHAIN IN AFRICA

The theme highlights the importance of creating viable agriculture and food industry value chains in Africa as it struggles to meet rising demand for food, water, energy and other scarce resources. 

The 2019 edition of AFMASS Eastern Africa will go back to the Visa Oshwal Centre in the Westlands suburb of Nairobi, Kenya, where it was last held in 2017, hence returning to a venue that will enable the industry stakeholders to network and do business in an easy, business friendly setting, at one of the best event venues in Nairobi.

The Conference sessions shall bring together 400+ regional and international delegates in daily conference and panel discussion sessions.

A parallel exhibition, open to trade visitors, and where over 2000 visitors are expected over the three days, will provide exhibitors and partners the opportunity to trade and reach out to the industry.
