The Africa Food Awards celebrate the people, new product innovations, sustainability initiatives and leading companies in Africa’s food industry. They have become sub-Saharan Africa’s most respected food industry Awards process and ceremony – since the first edition in 2017.

The Awards have been hosted in Nairobi every year except in 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic disruptions led to a pause in the celebrations. They are mainly focused on celebrating individual and team excellence and achievements by start-ups, big corporates and multinationals operating in Africa – as the region becomes the next growth and investments frontier.
