Mask-Africa Food Security
The growth in food demand is the result of the combined effects of world population growth to over 9 billion by 2050. Mask-Africa understands the urgent need to develop strategies for developing Africa’s agriculture potential which, is universally forecasted to supply some 60% of the world’s feeding needs in the future.
Whilst the sector continues to suffer from underdevelopment, we should look to Africa’s 80 million smallholder & semi-commercial farmers and harness their productive potential and to integrate them into the value chain to help play a key role in ensuring global food security and to help alleviate poverty.
Africa is at the forefront of agriculture business and investment
Mask-Africa is a world-leading provider of content driven, information rich business events for the agriculture sector in Africa providing a business platform to build long term partnerships with the most innovative and forward thinking local and international private companies, financial institutions, farmers organisations, donors, universities, NGO’s, agencies and governments.

The business potential is immense……………………
Mask-Africa is proud to announce the Food Security & Nutrition Program 27-29 October 2013, the first in a series of events to discuss ways to accelerate sustainable investment in Southern African agriculture to improve food security.
We will bring together key leaders from farmers organisations, universities, financial institutions, donors, NGO’s, agencies, foundations and governments to discuss with local and international companies their aims, challenges and goals, announce opportunities, time scales, inward investment, their agricultural needs, and how to integrate agri-businesses, smallholder & semi-commercial farmers into the value chain.
