Some of the dignitaries that visited the Food Bridge's stand at the event included President Faure of Seychelles, Nigerian state minister of budget and national planning, Mr Clement Ikanade Agba , H.E Ambassador Inusa and Mr Maxy Ogbede of Nigerian embassy Belgium and many others.
Some food products by African Diaspora entrepreneurs were also on display. This helped showcase the work that African Diaspora entrepreneurs are already doing in this sector. Our aim is for many to learn about the great work being done by these entrepreneurs and also patronize these entrepreneurs.
