As part of the interpack product family, the third edition of the Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum (FPPE) will take place from November 3 – 5, 2015 at the Kenyatta International Conference Center in Nairobi, Kenya, an annual event that has firmly established itself in the local market.
Companies from 10 nations will showcase their solutions and products, complemented by a three-day symposium with the theme of ‘Save Food’.
Organized by Messe Düsseldorf, the main focus of the FPPE 2015 exhibition is on adequate solutions geared towards the needs of local food producers. Their requirements and the proposals from suppliers to meet them, as well as policies and framework conditions, are the core elements of the symposium.
Government and trade association topics are on the agenda on the first day of the symposium, while the second day will be mainly devoted to the topic of food losses. This part of the program will be organized by the partners of the Save Food Initiative, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Messe Düsseldorf. The last day will concentrate on technology and knowledge exchange for adequate processing and packaging solutions, which are key in fighting food losses, particularly in the Sub-Saharan countries.
For the first time there will be a German national pavilion at the FPPE, with 18 participating exhibitors as well as a joint presentation by the aluminum foil industry with five participating companies.
Last year’s edition of the FPPE attracted more than 1,000 visitors from Kenya and neighboring East African states.
