Agritech Expo returns to Chisamba in April

Vision: "when the region thinks of food, it should think Zambia”

This year, 17-18th April 2015 at GART Chisamba, the Agritech Expo aims to be bigger and stronger with increased exhibition space. The Expo has also dedicated one of the three days as a focus day for commercial and emerging commercial farmers.

Last years event attracted 8000 farmers and agribusiness professionals, 69 exhibitors, 23 hectares of expo site including crop trails and 40 exhibitors from the Zambia Poultry Expo. Additionally, the event was also attended by former Zambian Vice-President Dr Guy Scott, the Minister of Livestock and Agriculture, the Honorable Minister Wylbur Simuusa, and former Zambian President Ruphia B. Banda.

The President of the Zambia National Farmers Union, Dr Nguleka stated that “we would like Agritech 2015 to be even better. We saw from the over-subscription last year that this is what the farming community needs. We would like to build on last year’s successes and make this event one that farmers and other agri-business players will always be looking forward to.”
