The African Food & Beverages Tech Conference is a convergence of investors, managers and professionals; suppliers, Government agencies and NGOs from the food and beverage supply chain in Africa and the World to discuss the latest technologies, trends and regulations in the food and beverage industry in Africa.

The African Food & Beverages Tech Conference, previously called AFMASS Conference, focuses on current and emerging issues in Africa’s food and beverage storage, distribution, manufacturing, packaging, food service, marketing, retailing and consumer safety.

By attending the Conference, stakeholders learn new technologies, regulations and practices that enable the industry in Africa to adopt to a new consumer environment; where a more aware consumer in Africa continues to ask for better quality, safer, lower cost and better packaged products.

Participants also learn the trends and future prospects of the manufacturing, packaging and food safety of dairy, beverages, meat, fish and seafood, fruits & veg, sugar & candy, food service, fats, oils and oilseeds and other processed food products.

The Conference involves presentations by a number of industry leaders, experts, Government regulators and managers from the NGO space with special skills in various facets of food processing, packaging and safety related topics covering the entire value chain.

Several Panel Discussions and networking sessions ensure attendees get to network and trade during the Conference and at the exhibition, which will be set next to the Conference Hall.

During the 2018 editions of AFMASS Conference & Expo, the African Food & Beverages Tech Conference takes place in both the Kenyan and Zambian editions, over the three days of the events.
