ABOUT THE SUMMIT

Africa Food Safety & Quality Summit is Africa’s premier food  safety, regulatory, policy, quality and laboratory management conference and exhibition. The industry focused Summit brings together regional and global experts and stakeholders to discover the latest trends in science and technology, regulations, standards, compliance, operations and sustainable adoption of safe and efficient safety, quality and management practices in the entire agriculture, food and pharmaceutical value chain in Africa.

Food Safety is Africa's primary concern and challenge

Food safety challenges weigh heavily on Africa, negatively impacting consumer health, business performance and regional and international trade. From incidents related to Aflatoxins contamination, food poisoning, heavy metals contamination, to emerging issues including new bacteria, toxins and antibiotic resistance, the Continent is disproportionately affected by food safety challenges. There is an urgent need to find new ways and technologies to protect Africa’s consumer due to  changes in consumer habits, a rapidly globalising food supply chain, changes in testing protocols for diagnosing food borne illnesses and challenges with regulating and policing food systems in the region.

Future-defining conference sessions

Over 1,000 delegates from Africa and across the World are expected to grace the 2020 edition of the Summit – from the food, animal feed and pharmaceutical manufacturing and retailing; exporters and importers; hospitality, restaurants and catering managers; healthcare and other institutions managers; Government ministries and regulatory agencies officials; agriculture value chain players; suppliers of technologies; academicians and researchers and other stakeholders – to discover the latest trends, opportunities and challenges and learn how to improve systems and reduce risks.
