Please note, that after much deliberation, the African Agri Council NPC (AAC) has decided to cancel the Investment Food Forum due to take place this year in Berlin from 18 - 20 July. The concept of the Investment Food Forum, which covers the global agrifood investment landscape, will be integrated with our flagship event, the African Agri Investment Indaba (AAII) due to take place from 14 - 16 November 2022 in Cape Town. Combining the two events will ensure the continuous growth of AAII as the African continent's largest agrifood investment focus event. 
We hope you can join us to connect with our partners, members and wider network in person.

Connect, network and interact with African and global agrifood investors

The Investment Food Forum (IFF), taking place 18-20 July 2022 in Berlin, Germany, highlights African and global 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 African and global 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 table top exhibits and high level presentations.
