1st Aflasafe for Africa Conference, fighting aflatoxin in food

Twitter hashtags: #1stAflasafeConference, #Aflasafe4Africa and #Aflasafe2019 

Programme and brochure: PDF download  


The Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialisation initiative (ATTC), led by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) has given rise to a vibrant team of private-sector partners across Africa who have made significant investments in producing and commercialising Aflasafe®, an IITA research product whose pre-harvest application enables crop production with little – or no – aflatoxin, while providing postharvest protection too.

Venturing into this commercialisation arena at different times over the past three years are peerless, pioneering, private-sector players. In a relatively short time, they have remarkably:

  • increased the production of Aflasafe at country level;
  • mapped Aflasafe’s route to market;
  • forged partnerships that have increased Aflasafe’s availability, accessibility and use; and,
  • linked up with buyers of aflatoxin-safe maize and groundnuts.

From this, they have gained considerable practical hands-on experience on what works and does not work; tested  different approaches, refining and discarding some; failed, and gone back to the drawing board; and are still going strong!

As such, it is now timely to gather this brave band of trailblazing Aflasafe manufacturing and distribution (M&D) partners together to, among others:

  1. Report their progress commercialising Aflasafe
  2. Exchange experiences and lessons learnt in the course of doing business (What worked and what failed? Solutions found. Pinpoint areas for more attention)
  3. Build the capacity of M&D partners on new developments in Aflasafe technology and production
  4. Forge connections between M&D partners, regulators, suppliers of manufacturing equipment and consumables, and aflatoxin-conscious commodity buyers

Participants (participation by invitation only)

  • Company Managing Directors/CEOs/COOs, production leads
  • Maize, groundnut and sorghum processors, and bulk traders from selected countries
  • Funders and government representatives, regulators and leading food-safety industry players
  • Manufacturing and testing equipment suppliers
  • Regional economic communities

Main topics 

  • Go-to-market business models (tried and tested options, M&D partners experience)
  • Technology improvement (lessons learnt; latest practical and applicable recommendations on Aflasafe production)
  • Bio-industry outlook (lessons learnt from global compliance experience, market development, distribution, etc)
  • Building lasting business partnerships (collaboration with government and development programmes for business growth)
  • Aflasafe manufacturing optimisation (practical ideas and opportunities for joint research)

Theme: Business meets research for safer food in Africa

Date and venue: 4th–5th November 2019, Mount Meru Hotel, Arusha, Tanzania

Commercialisation brief, hot off the press!
Accompanying the conference, and for those following along around the world, we’ll soon bring you our brand-new brief: Our journey from incubation to market: Status of Aflasafe commercialisation in Africa. In one handy document, we’ve summarised our approach to Aflasafe commercialisation, its current status across Africa (with a wealth of country-specific graphs and case studies), challenges we’ve faced, lessons we’ve learnt so far and suggestions for the future. In other words, this richly packed box of delights offers an overview of all the themes we’ll be building on together in Arusha – coming soon!
