FOOD & KITCHEN AFRICA 2022
June 9 @ 11:00 am - June 11 @ 6:00 pm EAT
Food exhibition: East Africa’s premier International Food & Agriculture exhibition to host Exhibitors from over 26 countries
Kenya’s premier Food & Agriculture exhibition returns to Nairobi from 9 – 11 June 2022. FOOD & KITCHEN AFRICA 2022 will showcase top products, equipment, and machinery presented by exhibitors from over 26 countries
Building on the success of previous events, the FOOD & KITCHEN AFRICA 2022 just gets bigger and better. Also contributing is the recognition of Kenya as one of the major access points in Africa and the huge volume of imports in the country for its own consumption for over 40 million consumers. Last year, Kenya imported goods valued at $200 million and re-exported goods worth $520 million.
An enticing mix of consumer interaction and industry presence, the show boasts not only the highest attendance per day but also the highest business dealings per individual. The number of exhibitors and visitors in 2022 is expected to rise by at least 20% since an aggressive campaign has been launched while celebrating the event’s 20th birthday. Trade visitors from all over East & Central Africa are being invited directly and in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Congo.
This year’s show has an exciting line-up of both local and international companies and is an ideal platform for product launches, finding new buyers & distributors, promoting brand names and images, updating existing customers, and updating oneself with the latest in the industry. The FOOD & KITCHEN AFRICA 2022 is the place to learn more about what’s new on the food, hotel, kitchen & agriculture scene and present your own products to consumers and potential clients. The experience and comments of exhibitors at previous events indicate substantial gains from unexpected foreign visitors and we strongly feel that a rise in such statistics would ensure business, especially for the foreign participants, who form almost 80 – 85% of the exhibition.
