KENYA – The role of GMOs in the food security situation in Africa, the investment potential of the Dairy Industry in Uganda and the Regulatory environment of the Alcohol industry in Kenya are the three key Panel Discussions at the upcoming African Food Manufacturing & Safety Summit conference & expo 2016.

The current El Nino phenomenon (and drought brought by it) in Southern Africa has shown how vulnerable Africa is to food insecurity.

Can GMOs be part of the solution to Africa’s food security in future, with climate change knocking on the door?

Further, How competitive will Africa’s food and beverage sector be in future, if the current non-GMO stance is maintained? How can Africa remove the barriers to GMO adoption?

The milk industry in Uganda has been one of the leading lights in Africa. Investments continue to pour into the sector, but what are the challenges, opportunities, trends and future prospects of the milk sector in Uganda in terms of on farm production, processing and marketing?

The year 2015 was a critical one for the alcohol industry in Kenya, with the Government flexing its muscles to control the brewing/distilling of illicit alcohol in the country.

The industry further continues to grapple with counterfeits. Public health and safety and lost incomes by Government and industry players are at stake. What is the future prospect of the regulation of the alcohol industry in Kenya?

Join Government regulators, industry leaders and other stakeholders in these vital, incisive discussions.
