The Abuja Food Fair And Expo 2012! by Abujafood: 9:45am On Oct 30, 2012
The Idea of a modern day, university graduate farmer who applies modern farming practice to produce food is alien to Nigeria considering that farming is seen to be an illiterate elderly person’s occupation. That thought might soon become a thing of the past as a revolution is set to sweep the Nation’s landscape come December 2012 at the Eagle square when the Maiden Edition of 'the Food Expo' will hold from the 7th till the 9th of December.

According to the organizers led by Ms Derby Mangut, “the Food Expo is a dream come true” it’s an idea inspired by her cousin’s journeying into farming and proving it to be a profitable venture within a year even with little investment.

A film maker by training, Ms Mangut has chosen to start a career in the food industry but even more importantly she and her team members are working in partnership with an impressive list of sponsors namely; the Far East Mercantile Company, Grand Cereals ltd and Nestle’s Maggi who have shown interest in supporting the vision behind the food expo.

The Event itself is divided into 6 segments among which are the Young Entrepreneurs Challenge, kids Zone, Celebrity Cook-out and the Farmers forum to name a few.

In conjunction with the Governors Forum, the Food Expo is expected to provide a platform that will discover 12 enterprising Nigerians who would receive mentorship and training from the Pan African University, in addition to being an advocacy platform and a means of networking for local farmers among others.
