Quality & Laboratory Management
The quest to have a world class food safety system faces the challenge of inadequately resourced and managed quality and laboratory infrastructure across Africa.
African countries face a daunting task in recruiting and training adequate and skilled personnel to manage laboratories, while funding and knowledge gaps hinder the adoption of the latest quality and laboratory management technologies that are desperately needed in Africa.
Beyond the people, inadequate quality and laboratory management infrastructure and supplies, including physical laboratories, equipment, reagents and software technologies continue to hinder the adoption of the latest practices and testing mechanisms across the Continent.
The gap that exists in the people and the quality and laboratory infrastructure has opened doors frustrated customers and unreliable and inaccurate testing results that further erode the confidence of consumers in the food safety and quality management systems.
At the Africa Food Safety & Quality Summit’s conference sessions, the latest quality and laboratory management technologies and practices are discovered and shared with the key stakeholders from across the Continent.
At the Expo Hall, the latest quality management and laboratory technologies covering the entire scope of physical, chemical and microbiological testing, processing, supply chain and engineering technologies that are appropriate to Africa’s budding agriculture, food and pharmaceutical value chains are on display.
