THE ELDORET AGRIBUSINESS FAIR FROM 21st -23rd SEPTEMBER 2017
The Eldoret Agribusiness fair will take place from the 21st – 23rd September, 2017. The Holland Pavilion that the Netherlands Embassy organized last year was a big success and this year they aim to make it even bigger, better and bolder.The Holland Pavilion showcases Dutch agricultural products & technology at the Eldoret Agribusiness fair. The pavilion will consist of 6 themed clusters (Dairy, Potatoes, Horticulture, Technology & Innovation, Food court, and Matchmaking).
The potato sector will again be well represented this year. Two acres of potatoes have been planted to facilitate showcasing on mechanical harvesting using Dutch technology. Moreover, various demonstration plots have been planted with different potato varieties. In addition, water storage tanks will be built, drone technology and integrated pest management products will be demonstrated. An interactive program will be drafted, taking visitors on a tour over the Holland pavilion and the demonstration plots. The Holland pavilion will include a seminar tent with the capacity of over 200 people. Partaking companies will be able to give seminars here about their products or services to a large crowd. The seminar time schedule will be incorporated in the program.
Matchmaking is an essential part of a fair. Therefore, a separate tent has been designed specifically for this purpose. This restricted area will be used to close deals, give interviews or meet government officials.
Food security and food safety for all requires building a strong supply chain from farm to fork. To demonstrate this, the food court will host a number of companies displaying and selling end-products. Michelin star chefs will use these products to engage in a real cook-off while explaining about healthy and safe food consumption.
