Africa generates 100 million metric tonnes of food yearly, equivalent to $4bn, which could feed 44 million people (Gabon, Botswana, Gambia, Namibia, Eritrea, Mauritania, Congo, Liberia and Gambia combined). 30-40% of this yield never makes it to the consumer due to post-harvest food loss/waste during the procurement, transportation and distribution process.
Our panel will offer insights on how and why the agritech sector is one of the fastest-growing sectors in Africa, agriculture's contributions to socio-economic growth and most importantly emerging trends in Africa's food industry. We’ll be placing a spotlight on Africa food tech, highlighting challenges and budding solutions based on the experience of our panellists who are food entrepreneurs in Africa.
Our session will also share best practices on how Agri/food business owners can scale their businesses, secure investors, collaborate with stakeholders across the value chain and identify unexplored opportunities in the food-tech sector.
