Theme: Entrepreneurship, partnership and impactful development

 

Organized by The Food Bridge vzw , Meise Botanical Garden, Faab vzw and other partners. The 2019 African Diaspora Agro Food Forum will hold from 13th to 14th of September 2019 at the Bouchout Castle, Meise Botanical  Gardens Belgium.

African Diaspora entrepreneurship provides a huge opportunity for the  sustainable development of Africa. With a fast growing population of young people, the economic dynamics in Africa needs to be strengthened, with the incorporation of diverse stakeholders and innovative  tools in the agro food sector. The relevance of this sector in the development discourse is not debatable, thus ADAF 2019 is all about creating links to entrepreneurs,  research, industry, markets and communities.

The second day of the forum  will focus on promoting access to markets and partnerships. There will be exhibition stands for  agrofood entrepreneurs and allied sectors. There will also be a guided tour of Meise botanical gardens for registered participants . This tour will focus on crops that are important to the African food system, some of which will also be served at the closing event dinner in the evening.        

Target Audience:

African Diaspora entrepreneurs and startups

European agrofood SMEs looking for new markets and niches

Researchers and academics

Ngos and Communities

The  Bouchout Castle will be the venue for the conference on the 13th of September and the closing dinner on the evening of the 14th September 2019. However, the Mabundu Glass house tropical gardens and the surrounding lawns will host the exhibitions on the 14th of September too.
