Our Commitment to Sustainability



Shaping the Food & Health Industry for a sustainable future

Sustainability is of increasing importance to all industries. At Informa, sustainability is central to how we run our events, how we make decisions and how we do business on a daily basis. Every year, we aim to make the event more sustainable and to encourage our visitors and exhibitors to improve their sustainability efforts. In doing so, we strive to continue to improve the industry.

Fi Africa is proud of how it contributes to the sustainability of the industry and has developed programs, content and networking opportunities focused on food sustainability, waste management, biodegradable material to widen this contribution

  • In 2021, 6 conference talks were dedicated to inspire sustainable practices for food sustainability, waste management, biodegradable material, in addition to sustainable development initiatives and practices for the food manufacturing process
  • Providing the opportunity for students to attend the event, learn and network, in an effort to educate F&B future leaders
  • We make a significant waste reduction by going digital
  • Using digital QR codes for exhibitor brochures, entrance badges, floor plan, exhibitor directory and much more
  • Reusing and repurposing many exhibition items such as carpets and registration shell schemes
