Harare, September 20, 2013 – The Eastern and Southern Africa Dairy Association (ESADA) in collaboration with Zimbabwe Dairy Industry Trust (ZDIT) will this year hold the ninth African Dairy Conference and Exhibition in the capital from September 24th – 26th 2013.
The conference to be held in the country for the first time will attract more than 300 delegates from 40 countries.
ESADA Secretariat Peter Ngaruiya said the conference and exhibition was coming to Southern Africa region at a time when the sector was experiencing remarkable growth.
“The 9th ADC and E carries the full support of the entire dairy industry in Africa and beyond as well as the regional trade bloc and will be attended by all role-players building the future market for the Africa’s dairy sector,” he said.
“The African Dairy Conference and Exhibition has grown over years and the 9th ADC& E will present a great deal of improvements from the conference presentations, all round logistics to the overall experience that will definitely wow you and deliver to you the content and contacts to grow your dairy business in Africa” he added.
This conference, comes to Zimbabwe for the first time, and follows previous ones held in Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania. ESADA was formed in 2004 with the overarching mission of increasing trade in dairy products.
Specific ESADA objectives include actively lobbying for an improved policy environment conducive to regional and international trade with the new association already working with Comesa on the regional dairy policy agenda. Dairy has the capacity to increase economic growth and create job opportunities using existing natural resources and linkages through the value chain of the industry.
The conference will also highlight opportunities for investment in the dairy sector in Africa with a focus on the host country. This will expose African dairy practitioners and suppliers to new technologies and ideas for enhanced competitiveness.
Efforts to get a confirmation from the head of diary services in the ministry of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development Tendai Marecha were unfruitful as her mobile could not be reached by the time of going to press.
The dairy industry in Zimbabwe is on the recovery path mainly due to the availability of stock feeds, the multicurrency regime and support from milk producers and donors.
