Discover Southern & Central Africa's food, beverage and milling industry

Welcome to the 3rd edition of AFMASS Food Summit Zambia edition –  the event that keeps redefining the future of the food, beverage and milling industry in Southern & Central Africa

Zambia – and the sorrounding countries of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, DRC, Angola, Mozambique and Namibia – have seen an uptick of new investments to meet rising local, regional and international demand for packaged and processed food products.

Returning to Zambia after having taken place in 2017 and 2019, the AFMASS Food Summit Zambia edition was and remains the only food industry expo in these countries – thereby opening the door to the food industry stakeholders from across the region and beyond to discover the latest opportunities in one of Africa’s most important regions for the food and agro industry.

Zambia and its neighbouring countries face the same challenge – how to grow agricultural productivity and increase value addition locally to improve food security and nutrition, boost incomes and economies, save foreign exchange from food imports and create decent jobs for their rising populations. This Summit answers to this call.

Located in Lusaka, Zambia, this event enables attendees from Zambia and its neighbouring countries, plus South Africa and the rest of Africa to attend this regional forum with ease, due to Zambia’s central location.

Join us in Lusaka as we host another exciting edition of AFMASS Food Summit Zambia edition.
