The AFMASS Food Expo Virtual Seminars are a series of African-focused online discussions between stakeholders from the private, public, academic and NGO/development organisation sectors that highlight some of the opportunities, challenges and trends in the Continent’s food manufacturing, retail and hospitality industries.
By utilising online platforms to reach its audience within Africa and beyond, the platforms shape the future of the food industry and its associated value chains – giving opportunities for key stakeholders to contribute in defining this future in a more informed manner.
The Virtual Seminars are addressed by leading private sector managers and investors; Government officials, academicians, consultants and other key knowledge persons from within Africa and internationally.
They are a continuation of our African-industry focused AFMASS Food Expo and other conferences and exhibitions that have been taking place across Africa since 2015.
