Food Nigeria set to hold exhibition in Lagos

In a bid to showcase their products such as food and drinks, kitchen equipment, food services and hospitality; more than 150 international companies are expected to converge at the Food Nigeria Exhibition & Conferences which would take place between May 18th and 20th at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre in Lagos.

Food Nigeria provides the largest platform for both international and regional food and beverage companies to meet, network and establish business ties in Africa’s largest economy – Nigeria.

The show is also the largest gathering in West Africa for local and international food and beverage suppliers showcasing an extensive range of the latest products and services all under one roof.

Exhibitors would have the opportunity to meet major suppliers and exhibitors from all over the world, connect with potential investors and trading partners, establish contact with manufacturers who may be looking for local representatives, learn about new product launches and latest technologies in the food industry, gain invaluable sector insights by attending the free-entry conferences and review latest market trends from industry experts at various conference tracks.
Alongside the exhibition, the conference will address current themes in food supply chain management.
Supported by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC), the Association of Food Vendors in Nigeria (AFVN), and National Association of Supermarket Operators Nigeria (NASON); this is the must-attend business event for 2016.

According to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Nigerian food imports reached $5.740 billion in
2013, compared to $5.22 billion in 2012. This figure is projected to grow at 20 percent per annum by 2020. This level of expenditure will inevitably put a strain on resources, and in an attempt to reduce expenditure, The National Agency for Food & Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has recently highlighted a nationwide initiative within Nigeria to increase food production and exports.

Food Nigeria provides the platform for international food and beverage companies to gain entry into this lucrative market, and for domestic companies to grow and develop their networks across the region.
Major topics and issues to be discussed at the event include supply chain management, food technology and retail innovation.

Expected at the conference are government officials, key decision makers and market leaders looking to gain insight from both local and international experts.
