The exhibition is organised by BtoB Events. Exhibition Manager, Brad Smith, said: “This year’s exhibition is featuring more exhibitors, more countries, and more products than ever. If you are seeking new and exciting products that have yet to be seen in the West African market, then FAB is simply unmissable.

“FAB 2024 is bringing even more countries and exhibitors than ever before.

We are also welcoming exhibitors for the first time from countries such as Mexico, Korea, Hong Kong, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Iran, Libya, Turkmenistan, and Nepal.”

The event is recognised for the number and range of overseas exhibitors, which attract visitors from the West African region and beyond.

“We pride ourselves on the international standard quality that our exhibition represents. It is a unique exhibition where we are bringing the global food and beverage industry to Nigeria, with both exhibitors and visitors attending and all looking to do business within the West African region,” said Mr. Smith.

One of the international exhibitors, Xena’s Food Group is a Platinum Sponsor of FAB West Africa. Based in London, Xena’s is a wholesale food distributor specialising in premium-grade fresh condiments, oils, and ingredients. The company sees huge potential with the Nigerian market, noting the growing demand here for high-quality ingredients.

“We believe that this targeted approach aligns perfectly with our goal of expanding our presence in Nigeria and neighbouring countries. We see this event as a strategic platform to showcase our offerings.

“Our primary objective is to establish Xena’s Food Group as a trusted supplier of premium food products in the African market. We aim to forge partnerships with distributors, wholesalers, hotels, and restaurants, showcasing our extensive range of high-quality mayonnaises, ketchups, flours, cooking oils, poultry, eggs, and grains.”
