agrofood Kenya to become an annual platform for valuable business contacts

fairtrade goes Kenya!

Founded in 1991 and active in Africa since 1997, fairtrade now looks back on an impressive range of professional trade shows in Northern and sub-Saharan Africa.

plast & printpack alger for instance is the most important event for Algeria and the Maghreb countries.

For West Africa, fairtrade organises its agrofood & plastprintpack trade fairs in Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria.

And last but not least, fairtrade is active with agrofood & plastprintpack in Ethiopia and thus in East Africa. The edition of May 2019 featured not less than 153 exhibitors from 18 countries and 3,205 visitors from 20 countries.

Since 85% of the exhibitors were satisfied with the event, it came as no surprise that some of the exhibitors asked us to organize such an international trade show as well in Kenya. So here we are, fairtrade goes Kenya!

Meet the Agri and F&B Top Buyers of Swahili speaking East & Central Africa

  • Swahili is the lingua Franca of the East African Community and connects its six member states in the African Great Lakes region of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Plus the DR Congo.
  • A total of 250 million people live in this region.
  • And according to VDMA, they invested 135 million euros in agricultural technology and 298 million euros in f&b process technology in 2018 alone.

Why exhibit in food + bev tec Kenya?

Kenya is the second largest importer of food & beverage process and packaging technology in East & Central Africa

  • From 2014 to 2018, Kenya imported 627 million euros in process and packaging technology for food and beverages. (VDMA)
  • This makes Kenya the second largest importing country of such technologies in East & Central Africa, right after Ethiopia with 693 million euros.
  • A clear signal of the political will to expand local food production and the “Made in Kenya” – trend.
  • Continuous growth is expected in the coming years.

Opportunities in the agrofood industry

  • Kenya’s food industry is among the most diversified in sub-Saharan Africa. At present, massive investments are currently being made in the baking, meat processing and beverage industry.
  • The demand for finished food products is expanding. In recent years, fast food chains have discovered the Kenyan market. They need a functioning supply chain.
  • Revival of local food production and “Made in Kenya” – trend; political will to expand local food production.
  • One of the largest markets for food products in East & Central Africa – still under-supplied.

Why exhibit in food ingredients Kenya?

Demand for F&B ingredients rising continuously

  • With 53 million inhabitants, Kenya has long been one of largest food markets in East & Central Africa.
  • Expenditure in the F&B sector is growing steadily and F&B production is by far the largest segment of the Kenyan processing industry.
  • Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. So it is only natural that Kenya food ingredients forms an important part of agrofood Kenya.
  • With Kenya food ingredients, fairtrade is responding to the request of exhibitors for their own partial trade show under the umbrella of agrofood Kenya.
  • Just like Iran food ingredients which fairtrade established a few years ago in Tehran under the umbrella of agrofood Iran.

Why exhibit in food + hospitality Kenya?

Food trade with Kenya is a 5.916 billion US$ business!

Kenya food + hospitality for food, beverages and foodservice

  • Great chances for business for food and beverage suppliers from around the world:
  • Kenya imported US$ 3.154 billion worth of food and agricultural products in 2017. And Kenyan exports amounted to US$ 2.762 billion in the same year.
  • Thus food trade with Kenya is a 5.916 billion US$ business!

Retail services contribute 6.38 billion US$ to GDP

  • Retail services contributed 6.38 billion US$ to Kenya’s GDP in 2018, with supermarkets comprising a key segment of the sector, largely in urban areas.
