Meet the Farmers Conference (MTFC) is a first of its kind agro event that aims to connect large scale commodity producers in Africa to buyers in the UAE. There is a $110 billion market gap that we believe Africa can fill. MTFC aims to tackle this imbalance by creating a thriving environment to breed synergy between African farmers, exporters and agribusiness investors with off-takers in the GCC, using Dubai as a hub.
Our vision is to aggregate both markets to facilitate profitable and sustainable business partnerships. Farmers, participants, exhibitors, and delegates at the conference will leverage on business opportunities available to them and will also gain insights into a wide range of topics such as agro commodity trading in Dubai and GCC, import and exports requirements, laws and policies, financing, shipping, insurance out many other topics.
Creating a Sustainable Future
As the world’s oldest profession, agriculture has grounded itself into all areas of our lives. It has found its way in our feeding, commerce, fashion, medicine and more. Considering its importance, a lot of forecasts have been made over the future of agriculture and most times, the discussion ends at sustainability.
Sustainable agriculture drives to meet our present agricultural needs without comprising on its availability for the future generation. A sustainable future is realized through 3 factors: a healthy environment, economic profitability and groundbreaking innovation.
Our aim for Meet the Farmer Conference 2019 is to bring together these 3 requirements to drive business partnerships, a greener environment and cutting-edge technology to make a formidable impact in agriculture today as we know it.
