Africa’s Big 7 retail-ready F&B trade show will focus on sustainability, products with purpose, from bricks to clicks as well as on innovation. The exhibition scheduled to run from June 19 to 21, 2022 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg will be co-located with multi-sectoral trade show SAITEX and the Halal International Trade Expo.
A new feature included in the event is the Innovation Workshop, where participants will learn how to take an idea to launch in just 3 months, with insider support from Real Innovatrs. “Consumer-centric trends continue to drive F&B innovation,” says Evan Schiff, portfolio director of Food, Hospitality and Trade at dmg events, “and food professionals at this year’s face-to-face event will benefit from our innovative programme curated by Africa’s Big 7’s strong advisory board that promises strategic networking opportunities for buyers and brands as well as expert insight and guidance on how to tap into these trends and unlock future growth opportunities.”
„Consumer-centric trends continue to drive F&B innovation.“
The three-day event typically welcomes around 5,000 visitors and will showcase over 250 local, regional and international partners within the F&B business, with exhibitors hailing from 26 countries across the continent.
