Africa’s Big 7, the food and beverage trade show that brings together thousands of stakeholders, suppliers and buyers under one roof to boost pan-African trade, will be back in Johannesburg in June.

Africa’s Big 7 is the annual meeting place for food professionals across the continent, who visit to source, meet and gain insight into the very latest developments affecting the industry. This exciting b2b food event connects the start-ups, food innovators, foodtech businesses, investors and partners who are redefining the food industry from farm to fork.

The two-day FOODNEXT.AFRICA conference, which will be running alongside Africa’s Big 7, is built around an agenda of critical debate on addressing opportunities and challenges in the sector.

Africa’s Big 7 also features highlights such as Café Culture workshops, offering free barista and drinkspro training throughout the full three days of the show, where visitors can hone their skills and knowledge around two of the biggest beverage trends today: coffee and liquor.

The South African edition of the Global Pizza Challenge will also be staged at Africa’s Big 7, giving pizza chefs and aspiring pizza makers a chance to show off their skills, win cash prizes, and potentially be selected to compete in the international finals.

“Africa’s Big 7 has been running since 2001, and is now the market’s longest-running and most trusted show,” says event director Lynn Chamier.  “It’s a must-attend for anyone in the food, drinks, hospitality, restaurant and catering value chain.”
