Food Sector & Cold Chain Business opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa

Physical meeting at Agro Food Park 26, 8200 Aarhus N

Invitation to participate in a physical meeting about the food industry business opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa, Monday 30 October 2023, 9:00-12:30 (17:00) at DAFC offices

The Trade Council and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council present opportunities for Danish companies to tap into Sub Saharan Africa’s transformation of the Food Industry & Cold Chain sectors.

Join us at the Agrofood Park on Monday, 30th October 2023, for a unique opportunity to explore the potential of the Sub-Saharan African food sector and cold chain market. With a growing population, increasing urbanisation, and rising middle class, the region presents a wealth of opportunities for Danish companies looking to expand their horizons. In fact, the Sub-Saharan African food sector is expected to reach a value of over $1 trillion by 2030, with a growing demand for high-quality, processed food products.

The Trade Council Sub-Saharan Africa and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) are excited to host this informative event, designed specifically for companies in the Danish food sector.

During the presentations, our knowledgeable Trade Council commercial officers will provide an overview of the current state of the market and highlight the potential for growth and collaboration in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana/Côte d’Ivoire. You will also have an opportunity to interact with the commercial advisors for your specific enquiries.
