WHY EVENT MATTERS

Facilitating Innovations & Sustainability in Africa's Meat, Poultry, Fish & Seafood Industry

The meat, poultry, fish and seafood value chain in Africa is undergoing a significant transformation as the continent’s economies grow, populations increase, and food retail and consumption habits evolve.

According to the World Bank, the demand for animal protein in sub-Saharan Africa is projected to surge by over 300% by 2050.

The sector presents one of the greatest opportunities for economic, nutritional, and social transformation in Africa, driven by the need for affordable, nutritious, and safe protein sources.

With Africa’s population set to double by 2050, rising incomes, urbanization, and evolving consumer preferences are fueling rapid growth in the meat, poultry, fish, and seafood industry.

Investment in ranches, poultry farms, and aquaculture facilities has become commonplace across the continent, attracting both local and international players.

Furthermore, there has been a notable transformation in the retail and consumption of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood products, with global and African fast food chains capitalizing on the rising demand.

As Africa’s economies continue to progress, South African and global meat conglomerates are expected to expand their presence in the sub-Saharan African market.

Looking ahead to 2030, investments in farming, retail, processing, and packaging capacities for meat, poultry, fish, and seafood are predicted to increase substantially to meet the growing demand for safe and nutritious products.

Innovation and sustainability are crucial considerations in the African meat, poultry, fish, and seafood sector.

Stakeholders are actively seeking ways to enhance productivity, safety, and cost-effectiveness while meeting shifting consumer preferences.

The industry also faces an urgent need to adopt sustainability initiatives that minimize environmental impacts and promote local production.
