The Meet the Farmers Conference vision was birthed in 2017 with the aim to create a platform that will connect agri-producers in Africa to off-takers in the Middle East and beyond. The event also aims to strengthen the international trade ties between Africa and the GCC through agriculture whilst leveraging Dubai’s position as a hub.
