IFP Group would like to invite you to take part in its leading event ‘FOOD AFRICA 2015’, the International Trade Exhibition for Food and Beverages taking place in Cairo, Egypt from 6 – 9 May 2015.
FOOD AFRICA reaches out far beyond Egypt towards the east, central, and southern parts of the continent targeting a population of almost 500 million. The sheer size of this lucrative market makes FOOD AFRICA an exceptionally ideal platform for international food and beverage producers to meet leading importers and distributors and gain instant access to the market while developing new partnerships.
• Egypt spends about USD 15 billion a year in food subsidies
• At USD 27,701 million, imports of food products in the COMESA region accounted for 18% of total imports in 2013.
FOOD AFRICA will feature a Hosted Buyers Program which aims at maximizing business opportunities for exhibitors. Prominent buyers, importers, and distributors will be invited from the MENA region and African states as guests of the show to interact with exhibitors and conclude import contracts and dealership agreements.
EXPORT TO EGYPT
The Egyptian market has a great potential for exporting companies due to its large population, which is expected to exceed 100mn people by 2020. Poor water quality and increasing awareness of health has fostered annual increases in sales for the bottled water industry along with an increase in demand for processed and packaged foods, which is likely to expand further as income rises and brand-consciousness among consumers strengthens. The diary sector is yet very dispersed among more than 300 small producers, which makes it possible to get a good grip in the market for newcomers. The strong tourism sector in Egypt is a great additional possibility for increased sales as demand for well-known international brands increases along with the presence of foreigners in the country.
Food Africa is an ideal platform to meet with decision makers from Egypt
and other African Countries in one place
For international exporters seeking to introduce their products in Egypt and Africa, FOOD AFRICA provides an unmatched trade and sourcing platform, and offers exhibitors a unique opportunity to pitch themselves against their competitors, demonstrate their international strength, and gauge demand for their products in this evolving market.
