Market Access Africa 2021

Unlocking the enormous potential of its agriculture should be at the top of the global food security agenda.


Market Access Africa (MAA) is the global meeting place for food and agriculture buyers and sellers – promoting African food and agriculture commodities, scaling up processing, development of robust supply chains as well as tailor-made financial schemes – while providing opportunities to access new and existing markets to impact companies bottom line.

Organised by the African Agri Council (AAC) in partnership with African governments and leading agribusinesses, MAA will provide a global platform for stakeholders to identify the latest technologies that will raise the continent’s food and agricultural productivity, link to trading services and discuss policy reforms in order to curb Africa’s annual import bill.

Market Access Africa (MAA) connects the entire food and agriculture value chain with a focus on market access. We need to harness the latest technologies, apply the right policies and raise the continent’s food and agricultural productivity to curb its annual import bill.

MAA will impact companies’ bottom line by improving access to regional and international markets, technologies, inputs, handling and storage, as well as tailored trade finance solutions.
