FAB times set to roll again in Nigeria for Food&Beverage West Africa in June

Food & Beverage West Africa is set to run again, this year 13-15 June at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, Nigeria, with organisers saying they expect to welcome exhibitors from more than 30 countries.

(FAB) West Africa 2023 was the largest exhibition on the African continent dedicated to the F&B industry and the event hosted over 250 exhibitors and 5,000 trade professionals from across the African continent.
Among the 10 country pavilions this year will be new pavilions featuring foods, drinks, equipment and services from India, Dubai and Russia, while the United Nation’s International Trade Centre (ITC) organisation will be sending a delegation of West African producers, including delegates from Gambia and Liberia. Indonesia will also be sending a delegation.

FAB West Africa is the only opportunity for businesses across the world to access the key decision makers from across the African food and beverage industry, organisers BtoB Events say. Managing director, Jamie Hill, said: “The show’s expansion reflects the confidence in Nigeria’s economic landscape – people are ready for Nigeria to do business and the Food & Beverage exhibition is now at a truly international scale.”

Among the show partners is the Restaurant & Food Service Proprietors Association of Nigeria (REFSPAN), whose spokesman said: “Food & Beverage West Africa gives REFSPAN members a bouquet of opportunities to meet with key players in major parts of the world that are beneficial to the dynamism and the growth REFSPAN desire, in order to promote more and expand the QSR [quick-service restaurant] business in Nigeria.”

BtoB Events are responsible for one of the largest portfolios of exhibitions across the West African market covering industries such as Auto-parts, Medical, Food and Beverage and Beauty.
