Announcement: East African regional agribusiness expos

14th-15th June 2013. Arusha. Seliani Agricultural Research Institute (SARI). The Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC) in collaboration with other stakeholders has organised a two-day EAGC Agribusiness Expo 2013

The Agribusiness Expo is one of its kind and is aimed at bringing together all players in the agribusiness industry to exhibit their wares and services. It serves as a one-stop shop that creates a face-to-face encounter between the service providers and the users/buyers- of the farming community.

The theme for this year’s expo was “The Future of Agribusiness: Pathways to Commercialisation”. Under the theme, the expo targeted players in the agro-industry, including agro dealers, farm implement traders, food processors, players in the financial sector including banks, insurance companies and research institutions, among others.


Eastern Africa Grain Council is a member of the organization for the grain value chain in the eastern
Africa region bringing together grain producers, traders, processors and other stakeholders with an objective of finding solutions to common problems and challenges affecting the sector and in particular to promote structured trading systems as a way of improving regional grain trade by harmonization of standards, grades, rules of trade and advocating for an enabling environment free of trade barriers such as tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade.

EAGC is also a member of the East Africa Business Council (EABC) and has offices in Tanzania, Uganda and a regional head office in Kenya.

The Agri-business Expo is one of the various platforms that EAGC has developed for the members and stakeholders to engage, network, develop business linkages and exchange ideas so as to learn from each other as we all pursue the mandate and objectives of the Council.

Uganda: 28-29 June 2013.
