The Africa Food Sustainability Summit is a one-day high-level conference and expo that defines the future of sustainability in Africa's food and agriculture supply chain sector - from farm to fork.
The Summit provides the platform for key stakeholders in the food and agri sector to learn, share, engage and network, while discovering new opportunities, practices, technologies and trends that they can adopt to enhance the sustainability agenda in their businesses and communities.
This ground-breaking pan-African Summit is the largest gathering of investors, C-Suite executives and other key decision makers from the private, public, non-profits and academic/research institutes in the food and agriculture value chain with a focus on the broad subject of sustainability in the food and agriculture value chains in Africa.
The need for a more sustainable food and agriculture sector in Africa has come into sharp focus following the massive disruptions brought by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Russian-Ukraine war and conflicts in a number of African countries, which have led to high food prices and general disruptions in supply chains across the Continent.
The Summit provides the perfect platform to discover and learn from some of Africa's leading start-ups, conglomerates and multi-nationals; Government agencies and NGOs/development partners; and universities and research institutes about the latest practices and technologies to mainstream sustainability in Africa's food and agri sector.
At the Summit, the food and agriculture industry stakeholders will be looking at more than just availing more locally-produced, nutritious food to Africa's growing population, but also how to urgently create more prosperous, just and stable local societies and economies; accelerate renewable energy transition; boost cleaner and circular economy initiatives and other sustainability related topical issues - with urgency and scale across Africa.
The Africa Sustainability Summit will take place during our own Africa Food Industry Week, which comprises a number of separate but related events focused on the food industry in Africa.
These events include AFMASS Food Expo (March 30-April 1, 2023), AFMASS Youth Summit (March 31, 2023) and the Africa Food Industry Excellence Awards (March 31, 2023), which are all organised and curated by FW Africa.
