Delegate Programme: IBA Trade Show 2023

Munich, 21 – 26 October 2023

To build up industrial capacities in the bakery and confectionary industry in Africa, UNIDO ITPO Germany invited private sector companies from Africa to take part in a delegation trip to IBA Munich and to connect with potential partners and technology providers from Germany and Europe. From 22 to 26 October 2023, the bakery and
confectionary industry gathered in Munich for the world’s leading trade show, where the latest technologies and innovations were presented.

The bakery sector is a fast-growing industry in Africa, playing a crucial role in fighting hunger, developing new value chains, and creating much needed jobs. Opportunities abound, triggered by population growth and rising demand for food, the increasing need for resource and energy-efficient production methods, coupled with a growing
middle class and a demand for high-quality packaged bakery goods. 23 delegates, chosen from over 100 applications, met with suppliers, took part in guided tours and visited state-of-the-art production sites in Bavaria.
