“FoodNext.Africa is curated around an agenda of critical debate – hosted by business leaders and innovators who will be providing insights into embracing market changes, scaling up new projects and meeting the rapidly evolving needs of consumers. It is an innovation platform that focuses on accelerating expansion and change within the food and beverage industry,” said Fran Smook, Programme Director at dmg events.
FoodNext.Africa provides delegates with the opportunity to engage with leading minds including Nicola Jenkin, Director of Pinpoint Sustainability; Prof. Suzan Oelofse, Research Group Leader: Waste Department at CSIR, Amanda Tshaya, Head of Agribusiness Investment Unit at Wesgro; Ewoud Derksen, Director of 1K1V; Nicki Russell, Head of Innovation at Pick n Pay; Christina Costa, Product Development Manager at Woolworths; Dr. Harris Steinman, Medical Doctor and CEO of Food & Allergy Consulting & Testing Services (FACTS) and Sanjeev Raghubir, Group Sustainability Manager for Shoprite & Checkers amongst others.
The conference provides startups, namely KHULA, Gourmet Grubb, Kudoti and Local Village Foods with the chance to pitch their business in between specific sessions providing the necessary exposure to the investors and partners in the forum. This year the attendees will be part of our taste experience and be one of the first in line to sample some of the latest innovations like Infinite Foods “just burgers” and “hot dogs”, Gourmet Grubb’s polenta fries made from mopane worm flour and KannaSwiss’ “cannabis chocolate.”
If you are in food security, food nutrition, food innovation and food waste; join us from 10 – 11 September 2019 at the CTICC, Cape Town for 2 days of networking and be part of the discussions reshaping the food of tomorrow.
