The European Union officially supports agrofood Nigeria 2015, the 1st International Trade Show on Agriculture, Food, Beverage & Packaging Technology and Food, Beverages & Hospitality. Nigeria has a market of more than 160 million consumers and an increasing demand for packaged and ready-made food products. This opens major business opportunities for international suppliers from the agrofood and food technology sector. agrofood Nigeria will be held from 28 to 30 April 2015 at the brand-new Landmark Convention Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.

The European Union officially supports the international trade show agrofood Nigeria 2015. This becomes evident from a letter of 28 October 2014 of Michel Arrion, Head of Delegation and Ambassador of the European Union – Delegation to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and to the Economic Community of West Africa States.

Arrion describes the Nigerian market as follows: “The food and beverage sector represents a very large segment of the Nigerian manufacturing industry. The sector generates over 1.5 million jobs in the country and thus employs 5 percent of the Nigerian workforce. Moreover, with a market of over 160 million consumers, and a constantly growing population, Nigeria has an increasing demand for packaged and ready-made food products. Against this background, European suppliers can play an important role in providing the Nigerian food manufacturing and agro-business industry with machinery, equipment and technological know-how meeting a high degree of food safety and compliance with international hygienic standards.”

He further renders his support for the event: “The Delegation of the European Union to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and ECOWAS therefore welcomes the initiative of fairtrade Messe to organize the 1st International Trade Fairs agrofood Nigeria 2015 to be held at the Landmark Centre in Lagos on 28-30 April 2015.”

Six months before its opening, adepta is about setting up an official French pavilion with a minimum of eight French companies and leading suppliers such as Alis-Casa Rinaldi, BCE Food Service, Bosch, Döhler, GEA, Goma, Kautex, Konica Minolta, Pakona, Symrise (who recently opened their office in Lagos), Windmöller & Hölscher and many more have booked their stands.

To create valuable synergies for exhibitors and visitors alike, agrofood Nigeria is held in conjunction with plastprintpack Nigeria, the 1st International Trade Show on Plastics, Composites, Chemistry and Printing & Packaging Solutions and Material.
