The event will cover the latest innovative technologies in the dairy, soft and alcoholic drinks industry in Africa:

The

The dairy and drinks industry is changing in Africa. Be part of the revolution

The dairy, soft and alcoholic drink industries are some of the most vibrant in Africa, with increasing investments and new product innovations. They are also the sectors with the greatest potential for future growth, driven by a growing population, rising incomes, swellingurbanisation and changing consumer habits – driven by the large youth population across the Continent.

The Africa Dairy & Drink Innovations Conference is primarily targeted at the key decision makers in the dairy and drink processing industry in Africa to enable them to boost innovations, improve efficiencies of manufacturing, upgrade food and plant safety and increase sustainable utilisation of raw materials, packaging, energy, water and other resources.

The pace of investments, innovations and change in the dairy and drinks industry in Africa is increasingly becoming fast paced. 

Younger, more urbanised consumers across the Continent are putting pressure on these two key industries to innovate faster, better, trendier and more nutritious products in a more sustainable way. How do you maintain your competitive edge in Africa – where the demand for dairy and drink products are rising exponentially – but where competition is also on the rise?

Further, influenced by the happenings around the World, the dairy and drinks industries are beginning to merge, with some of the leading drinks companies entering the dairy sector as the line between dairy and drinks processors fades.

The dairy industry has also seen the emergence of plant based products that continue to disrupt the sector.
