From 2015, the African Food Manufacturing & Safety Summit (AFMASS) Conference & Expo has been hosting business leaders from Africa and the World, changing the nature of industry-focused events in the region.
AFMASS Conference & Expo is the regional trade event that brings together stakeholders in the food and beverage, grains, milling, baking, foodservice and animal feed industries in sub-Saharan Africa to trade, network and learn the latest processing, packaging and food safety technologies and practices.
With a new business-friendly and accessible venue, an expanded programme with two conference streams, AFMASS 2017 is set to be the ultimate food, beverages, milling and feed industry trade show in the region.
For the first time, the African Grains, Milling & Feed (AFGRAINS) Conference stream has been added to meet the specific needs of the grains, milling, baking and feed industry in Africa.
The AFGRAINS conference stream is in addition to the AFMASS Conference that focuses on the dairy, beverages, fruit and veg, meat, sugar and candy, and other processed food products, plus the foodservice sector.
Managers from the food and feed industry in Africa meet at AFMASS 2017
Located at the business-friendly Visa Oshwal Centre within the Westlands suburb of Nairobi, AFMASS 2017 is expected to be attended by the key decision makers from the food and feed industry in sub-Saharan Africa region; regional and international suppliers; Government regulatory officials; and NGOs involved in food and feed industry supply chain from sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
Driven by its location in Nairobi, Kenya, the gateway to Africa's fast growing and changing food, milling, baking, foodservice and feed industry, AFMASS provides a one-stop shop to learn, experience and take advantage of Africa's rising economy in one venue, be it for conference delegates, visitors, exhibitors and sponsors, regulators and other stakeholders.
At the AFMASS and AFGRAINS Conferences, leading opinion leaders shall discuss the latest technologies, practices, trends and regulations in Africa's food, milling, baking, foodservice and feed industry, with topics ranging from nutrition, processing, packaging, food and feed safety, sustainability, post-harvest management and commodity markets, among others.
At the exhibition floor, visitors and delegates will have a unique opportunity to meet local, regional and international suppliers of the latest post-harvest, processing, packaging and laboratory equipment and solutions; ingredients and chemicals; packaging materials and supplies; food and beverage products; and essential services that meet the unique needs of the food and feed industry in Africa.
Industry leaders get recognised and rewarded
The 2017 edition will have an extra addition to it, ensuring that AFMASS continues to build its profile as the ultimate industry trade show and conference.
The Food Business Africa Industry Excellence Awards will be held during the event, with the 2017 edition, the first of these annual awards, celebrating those who have made critical contributions to the food, beverages, milling, foodservice and feed industry in the region in the Industry Champions awards category, before expanding the award ceremony from the 2018 version of AFMASS Conference & Exhibition.
