The Food Bridge vzw attended the ACP Business Summit held at the KICC, Nairobi Kenya. The event provided another opportunity for the Food Bridge's to introduce the African Diaspora Projects Initiative and further highlight the role of African Diaspora Entrepreneurs in developing the African agrofood sector. 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. Contact the Food Bridge vzw for a list of African Diaspora entrepreneurs and their products.
