First All-Africa Postharvest Congress and Exhibition
Event date: March 28, 2017 to March 31, 2017
Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Aflatoxin in food was among the prominent issues discussed at the First All-Africa Postharvest Congress and Exhibition held in Nairobi, Kenya, from 28th to 31st March 2017. Attracting around 600 participants, its theme was Reducing food waste and losses: sustainable solutions for Africa. Two interconnected and well-attended Congress events focussed specifically on aflatoxin. Firstly, a work stream on Aflatoxin management, food safety and nutrition updated stakeholders on contemporary aflatoxin research. This was followed by an interactive symposium entitled Safeguarding Africa’s food: Are we winning or losing the fight against aflatoxin?, which brought together world-class aflatoxin experts to discuss problems and practical solutions, and map the way forward for Africa.
