Great need to catch up on investments in process and packaging technology for food and beverages
The third Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum (FPPE), held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi from 3 to 5 November 2015, showed again that Kenya and its East African neighbours have great potential for suppliers in process and packaging technology. It is a region where enormous quantities of locally produced food are lost before they reach the consumer. This is due to faulty processing and packaging as well as inadequate infrastructure. SAVE FOOD therefore featured as a major issue at the FPPE conference, involving the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Messe Düsseldorf.
