The event is supported by our partners in Germany and Africa. The conference language is English with simultaneous French translation. The conference will take place in a hotel in Cameroon. Some speakers will perform their presentations virtually.


The initial event to introduce the network in Cameroon will be a short ONLINE conference focussing on the domestic food industry. We will have 15 – 30 minutes speeches on various topics from Quality & Safety, Logistics, Sales, Raw materials, and Food Packaging.

Of course, food packaging is a key factor when it comes to efficiency improvements in the domestic industry and identifying opportunities for exports from Cameroon.

These two points are the central aspects of the event and should be linked with the speeches.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you and offer a slot to speak to local representatives of the Cameroon industry and share your views, visions, and expertise to develop the food industry in Cameroon in the midterm.

We have invited over 100 local companies, representatives, institutes, and organizations. We expect 50 + participants for our first event.

In addition to the event, we schedule a 2-hour workshop for representatives (professors, lecturers, and students) from local the University and High Schools, to evaluate the possibility of a long-term partnership.


African food manufacturers to improve packaging, better compete in markets

Small and medium-sized firms in sub-Saharan Africa receive training in using quality packaging to add value to their products and ensure competitiveness in global markets.
