Food Ingredients Trade Mission to Ethiopia

Are you thinking about expanding your business to Ethiopia? Already over 100+ Dutch businesses started their business in Ethiopia. Take part in this Food ingredients trade mission to Ethiopia from the 17th to 21st of June.

The Ethiopian-Netherlands Trade for Agricultural Growth program (ENTAG) has been a trade facilitation program since 2016 and has been organizing around 10 trade missions so far. The ENTAG-office is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and supports Dutch businesses – importers, exporters and investors, to conduct sustainable business in or with Ethiopia. It has furthermore been organizing business platforms, business trainings, and other market-related activities in Ethiopian agri-business. Based on recent developments in the country, including the liberalization of FDI regulations, better land policies and increased quality of food production, ENTAG will organize a food ingredients trade mission to Ethiopia.

The mission will be open for companies or individuals active in spices, pulses & oilseeds, vegetables, nuts & dried fruits and sesame. By joining this mission, you will have the chance to discover and explore the Ethiopian market for food ingredients, witness its sourcing potential and see its investments opportunities.
