2021 sees Africa’s Big 7’s 18th edition once again being the continent’s largest meeting place for the food and beverage industry.

Now entering its 18th edition, Africa’s Big 7 is the continent’s largest annual meeting place for the food and beverage industry, where buyers, retailers and distributors from across Africa’s diverse and booming market come to source new ingredients, finished products and find the latest processing, packaging and logistics solutions.

Africa’s Big 7 connects thousands of local, regional and international partners throughout the value chain and delivers tangible opportunities to its exhibitors.

In response to stakeholder demand and to ensure maximum value from participating, Africa’s Big 7 now offers digital access to credible content and tailor-made connections for professionals unable to attend the live event. In 2021 we are excited to host a hybrid event that will have both a live and digital element.
