Food & Drink Technology Africa 2019

Food and Drink Technology (FDT) Africa is an international trade fair for the food and beverage industry, which takes place every two years in Johannesburg.

Africa is an important growth market and has considerable agricultural potential. Many countries want to expand their agricultural production in order to reduce dependence on imports, to increase their own exports and to meet the growing demand of consumers. To achieve this, advanced technologies and equipment is required.

For international companies, there is huge expansion potential and positive long-term business prospects. This is where the FDT Africa steps in – it offers companies access to the African market. Exhibitors show the latest innovations and technologies for safe, hygienic and efficient production and packaging of food and beverages and current developments and trends along the entire value chain.

It brings together local and international manufacturers of food, beverage and packaging technologies and provides a contact and information platform for networking and knowledge sharing, which will be accompanied by conferences and workshops.
