Africa Food Sustainability Summit 2022

DEFINING THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION, FOOD MANUFACTURING AND RETAIL IN AFRICA.

MARCH 16-17, 2023

PHYSICAL & VIRTUAL SUMMIT ACROSS AFRICA & THE WORLD

THEME: RESET & TRANSFORM: MAINSTREAMING SUSTAINABILITY IN AFRICA’S FOOD & AGRI INDUSTRY IN UNCERTAIN TIMES, IMPACTED BY COVID-19 PANDEMIC & SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS

THE SUMMIT

The Africa Food Sustainability Summit is a two-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.

LEADERS SPEAKING AT THE SUMMIT

The Summit will bring some of the leading voices from Africa and the World to share their insights and knowledge on how to mainstream sustainable practices and new technologies in the food and agro industry in Africa, including:
