Africa’s Big Seven (AB7)

22 to 24 June 2014, Midrand, South Africa. As a showcase for new and exciting foods, beverages and equipment from around the world, Africa’s Big Seven (AB7) is the biggest and most spectacular exhibition on the continent.

It’s also a versatile and highly effective platform for networking across the international food industry, and provides thousands of leads and opportunities for business – with more than 300 exhibitors from over 40 countries on the lookout for new importers, distributors, agents or representatives, but most importantly, new markets and new customers.

As the continent’s largest annual gathering of professionals for the industry it is the single most important platform for sourcing new products and technologies, networking, establishing new relationships and generally conducting business. As Africa grows and prospers, spawning a new middle class with more disposable income, demand for new and innovative foods, fast foods and home meal replacement alternatives grow. Manufacturing facilities need to be upgraded and established, wholesalers and retailers need to expand, cold chains need to be upgraded. All of this is addressed by the exhibitors at one annual event.
