ESTEC LIMITED AT THE AFRICA FOOD SAFETY SUMMIT 2022

The beautiful Emara Ole Sereni was the chosen location for Africa’s Most Influential Food Safety, Quality & Conformity Conference & Expo. The three days (July 20-July 22, 2022) were packed with presentations, Interviews, Panel discussions, Expo Hall Visits & Networking.

ESTEC Limited was on location as one of the major exhibitors. At the booth, our representatives took time to listen to the visitors, answer their questions, and showcase our products.

Tom Ouma our business development manager was one of the speakers at the summit. His presentation offered insights on Advances in Microbial & Physico-chemical Testing of Food Products, and how ESTEC supports the Food Industry using modern analytical techniques that meets the global standards.


His full presentation is available here

The event was a success, and we applaud FW Africa for the wonderful work they did.

ESTEC Ltd- Exhibitors at the Africa Food Safety Summit 2022

Food Safety is a critical issue in Africa. FW Africa, a leading publisher of Magazines and event organizer, holds summits and expos for stakeholders in the food industry to interact and learn.

This year, they will be hosting the Africa Food Safety Summit at the Ole Sereni Emara Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya from 20th -22nd July 2022. Unlike last year when the summit was virtual, this year the summit will be hybrid (physical and virtual) following their partnership with Africa Development Bank  and the sponsorship of Kerry.

At Estec Limited, we take matters food safety very seriously. This is inscripted in our mission statement as we seek to improve the livelihood of people through provision of safe products. In doing this, we have partnered with key global brands –SHIMADZU, Anton Paar, Gerhardt, and Phenomenex, among others,  to ensure that we provide the best technology in food testing that meets international standards to all our clients within the region.

We will be among the exhibitors at the Summit where we will showcase a variety of equipment used by in the food industry.

Our business development manager, Tom Ouma, is also be among the speakers.  He will be highlighting on Advances in Microbial & Physio-chemical Testing in Food Products.

 

We look forward to Africa’s Largest Food Safety Summit, and the opportunity to interact with our clients and delegates attending the summit.
