AFMASS FoodTech Ethiopia edition – Discover the Great north Eastern region of Africa

Set for its debut in 2020, AFMASS FoodTech Ethiopia is the first substantive regular food, beverage and milling industry trade conference and exhibition to be held in the region, covering the entire sector of the industry – from dairy, beverages, meat, milled products, pulses, fruits and vegetables, coffee and other agricultural and processed food products.

The event will comprise 2 days of capacity building conference sessions and an Expo Hall where the A-Z of processing, packaging, ingredients, food safety and other products and services can be found in one location.

Ethiopia is the most vibrant economy in Eastern and North-eastern Africa. After many years of being out of the radar of many investors, the economy of the country has posted double digit growth for more than 10 years, bringing with it massive investments in infrastructure, manufacturing, agriculture and tourism.

In the last 5-10 years, the country has attracted the attention of some of the world’s largest food industry players, including beer giants Heineken, Diageo and Castel and other players including Nestle and Fonterra. Private equity investors have also invested aggressively in the country.

Further, the strong economy has enabled the entry of local entrepreneurs who have invested massively in agro-processing and other food industries.

Ethiopia’s strong agriculture sector is the base from which most of the food, beverage and milling industry thrives, with vast opportunities to increase further agricultural production and local processing and packaging of food.

The country is one of Africa’s leading producer of wheat, maize, oilseeds, pulses, sugar cane, coffee, barley, sorghum, livestock and many more agricultural produce.
