Demand for F&B ingredients rising continuously

With 115 million inhabitants (2020), which according to the World Bank will rise to 200 million by 2050, Ethiopia has long been the largest food market 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 Ethiopian processing industry.

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. So it was only natural that more and more leading international ingredient companies took part in agrofood Ethiopia.

With  food  ingredients  Ethiopia, fairtrade  is  responding  to  the request of  exhibitors for their own partial tradeshow under the umbrella of agrofood Ethiopia.

Just like Iran food ingredients which fairtrade established a few years ago in Tehran under the umbrella of Iran agrofood.

Expenditure in the Ethiopian food & beverage sector to grow significantly

Voices of the exhibitors

Since its founding in 1969, Destilla has produced flavors and extracts of the highest quality. We’ve grown organically, continuously modernized our production processes and expanded our product portfolio.

Ethiopia is not only a country with great potential, but a hub for East Africa. We're setting up a lokal sales office in a first stage and want to establish local manufactoring mid to longterm.

We met locals from the whole food & beverage industry and are very satisfied with quantity & quality.

We were unsure what to expect due to the pandemic and the overall situation of the country but our expectations for the exhibition were outmatched by far.
