Ethiopian Skylight Hotel

Partner event:

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.

Ethiopia is an important market for our company because the food and the beverages industries are growing here in Ethiopia.

I made quite a few valuable leads here at agrofood Ethiopia 2018, interested to work on our behalf as distributors of our products towards the food & beverage industry.

One of the highlights of the show was the visit of the State Minister of Industry Dr. Mebratu Meles to our stand.
