Successful Second Edition of the Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum in Kenya

Over 1,000 participants from Kenya and the neighboring Eastern African states visited the exhibition cum symposium (figure: Messe Düsseldorf)

The second Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum (FPPE) held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya from 18 to 20 November 2014 has drawn to a very successful close. Over 1,000 participants from Kenya and the neighboring Eastern African states visited the exhibition cum symposium.

The Exposyum gave participants a 360° market overview on the focal theme of food losses and efficient food processing and packaging by mean of hands-on content from local experts as well as international exhibitors. Companies from this sector presented their demand-driven solutions, political institutions explained the political framework and possible support for suppliers to local producers while the latter in turn outlined their requirements. The FAO used the occasion for hosting a one-day conference on food losses. Speakers there inferred recommendations for avoiding food losses in Kenya and Eastern Africa from practical case studies from various countries and industries.

The save food initiative promoted by the partners FAO, UNEP and Messe Düsseldorf was represented with a stand involving 14 enterprises and associations (figure: Messe Düsseldorf)

Explaining the motivation behind the event, Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, CEO & President of Messe Düsseldorf, explained: “By holding the Processing & Packaging Exposyum we are bringing the supply of, and demand for, demand-driven packaging and process technology together locally. In this way we create a “Basis for Business” for our customers in keeping with our mission while making a key contribution to fighting food losses as part of the save food initiative – which is a pressing problem, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.”

Exhibitors and and visitors alike were very satisfied with the outcome of the event. Exhibitors praised the number of new contacts they were able to make and visitors were pleased with the innovations and technologies gathered at one place.

Early signals for FPPE Kenya 2014 have already been very positive. Both exhibition space and the number of exhibitors were significantly higher than at the premiere event. 65 companies and organizations took part – a marked increase over the debut event with 21 exhibitors one year ago. The exhibiting organizations also included the VDMA featuring a joint stand housing seven participants. Furthermore, the save food initiative promoted by the partners FAO, UNEP and Messe Düsseldorf was represented with a stand involving 14 enterprises and associations. Over the three days of the Exposyum to the tune of 40 talks were presented. The next Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum will be held in Nairobi/Kenya from 3–5 November 2015.
