Platform for African – European Partnership in Agricultural Research for Development

Thursday, June 5, 2014


2 - 4 June 2014. Agrikexpo West Africa – 2014 is the agricultural products/agro-allied industry expo in West Africa designed to create a B-2-B meeting platform between agri-business stakeholders/practitioners in West Africa and their overseas counterparts.

The idea for the collocation is to emphasise the direct relationship between primary agric production and value addition via processing/packaging.

Many food/beverage SMEs, including channel distributors in the industry, showcased various brands. Also, most overseas companies are looking for local representatives, which makes the collocated events a choice opportunity for food/beverage entrepreneurs.

According to the organiser, 151 Products Limited, in collaboration with the Nigerian American Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Federal Ministry of Agriculture, and the National Agency for Foods Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), the expo helps to create a trade specific event – agricultural business development – in support of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda of Nigeria.
“The current pace of agricultural revolution in Nigeria is quite commendable and must be sustained for the much desired benefits of food security, job creation and possible earnings from exports. A curios observer would definitely agree that government has done well, especially in the support of private sector initiatives for more.” Sam Ohuabunwa, chairman, 151Products Limited
