AGRIFOODTEC East Africa to debut in Kenya in September this year

Agritechplanetfair GmbH + Co. KG, Trade and Fairs East Africa (TFEA) Limited and DLG International GmbH have signed a cooperation agreement for a new exhibition in the East and Central African market namely AGRIFOODTEC East Africa

The exhibition will take place 1-3 September 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya, in cooperation with the Kenyan government and the Ministry for East African Community (EAC).

This international trade exhibition is expected to be a great chance for international partners to benefit from the agriculture, food and food processing business in East and Central Africa.

Skander Negasi, CEO of TFEA Limited, said, “Agriculture is a crucial industry within most African countries. Especially East and Central African countries are very successful in this business. What they need today is the entire value chain including food processing. AGRIFOODTEC East Africa is the perfect platform to bring together international offer and demand with this region.

"With the existing network and the professional organisation, the partners will deliver a perfect complement to the existing trade fair portfolio. Nairobi is the hub for this business in the East and Central African region."

Ingo Klöver, CEO of planetfair GmbH + Co. KG, added that there was a significant interest for international companies serving the agriculture and food sector to find new markets for future business.

After being engaged in Asia, the Middle East and South America, Africa and East Africa, in particular, will be the next success story for them. The success of AGRIFOODTEC East Africa is guaranteed due to the great partnership and linkage to the East and Central African governments and associations.
