Sustainability for 2020

We know how sustainability is increasingly important.

The Food Manufacturing Market in general may not be well known for its sustainable impact, however global trends are driving the market to shift gears towards more sustainable solutions and we see the auto aftermarket as the engine that powers this change in order to make a noticeable difference socially, environmentally and economically in the region.

Running Africa Food Manufacturing gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impact environmentally, socially and economically in our region.  We want to make the event more responsible and play a role in helping the market improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in the automotive sector.

Our three aims




1. Help our markets through inspiring sustainable development

We focus on:         

  • Using our content to support the sustainability of the market the event serves
  • Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors and other stakeholders to deliver a sustainable event
  • Developing market relevant partnerships 

2. Run the event in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner

We focus on:  

  • Reducing our event’s carbon emissions
  • Creating less waste           
  • Considering sustainability credentials of the items sourced for the event

3. Run the event in a socially responsible manner

We focus on:  

  • Doing business safely and ethically
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility         
  • Measuring our impacts 

How can you support sustainability

We are working with exhibitors, event partners and attendees to make Africa Food Manufacturing 2020 a sustainable event. As part
of this plan, we have developed suggestions and tips for building a sustainable food manufacturing event.
