The Africa Dairy & Beverage Summit is a high level platform for world-class education, capacity building and networking for the dairy, soft and alcoholic beverages industry in Africa, with a focus on the technical, scientific, nutritional, new product development and marketing aspects of these two key sectors of the food industry.

It brings together key decision makers from the dairy and drink processing, packaging, engineering, sustainability, QA/R&D, marketing/brand management and supply chain/logistics; suppliers of processing, packaging, quality and supply chain solutions; Government agencies and NGOs/development organisations in the dairy and beverage value in Africa and beyond to discuss the future of the industry.

The dairy and beverage sectors are two of the most important in terms of economic, nutritional and social impact in Africa. They are also the fastest growing across the continent, while the demand for better tasting, affordable and better-for-you products are surging across the Continent.

The two subject matter areas of innovation and sustainability are some of the key thematic issues in the dairy and beverage sectors in Africa. 

On innovations, the sectors are seeking ways to fast-track new products innovations that are affordable, nutritious and convenient, to meet the needs of young, increasingly urbanising populations. Changing consumer preferences also mean that dairy and beverage producers have to innovate for consumers who are exposed to new food concepts across Africa.

On the sustainability front, the sectors face two common challenges – to boost local sourcing of raw materials while increasing local manufacturing to reduce reliance on imported key commodities and final products; plus the urgent need to adopt sustainability initiatives that reduce impacts on the environment and the communities in which they operate.

The Africa Dairy & Beverage Summit is a pan-African initiative to enable the sharing of experiences and the discovery of new technologies and market trends. It also offers unique networking and business linkage opportunities that are vital for the growth of the changing dairy and beverage industry value chain in Africa.
