Connect, network and interact 

with global agrifood investors

The African Agri Council is pleased to host the second Investment Food Forum

The Investment Food Forum (IFF), taking place from 28 February - 2 March 2022 in Paris, highlights African investment opportunities in agrifood and offers attendees a comprehensive overview of the food investment landscape, tracking the flow of capital and asset performances in leading economic regions. 
 

Many relevant investment opportunities are in geographies unfamiliar to some investors, and their profitability rests not only on crop yields but also on how different parts of the value chain perform. IFF provides in-depth due diligence, technical, operational and strategic investment sessions covering the global food and agribusiness value chain.
 

The Forum will cover current market analysis and forecasts to remove uncertainties and provide much needed clarity for informed decision making. Our closed sessions experts will identify and evaluate the right investment opportunities through in-depth analysis linked to policymaking as well as global supply and demand movements, providing the rationale for investment in agrifood.
 

IFF 2022 will bring French, Europeans and African executives representing lenders, financiers, investors, agribusinesses, commercial farmers, co-ops and government officials – to promote and boost private sector investments and financing in African food and agribusiness. 
 

IFF will combine B2B meetings, technical and touristic site visits, engaging networking receptions, interactive exhibition and high level presentations.
