1st Nigeria Food Surplus Summit 2024

On behalf of Alford Conferences Limited/REVENUE Magazine, and the summit Strategic Event Partner (Standup for Women Society, SWS), we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 1st Nigeria Food Surplus Summit, slated for Abuja, FCT, November 20-22, 2024. You can participate as a partner, sponsor, exhibitor, advertiser, speaker, summit delegate, award guest, journalist, etc. The annual summit seeks to help Nigeria to successfully feed itself and have a large surplus for export by strengthening the commercial farming, food processing, and agricultural machinery segments of the country’s agricultural industry. For decades, up till this present moment, the burden of feeding this country of over 220 million people has rested largely on the shoulders of its millions of smallholder farmers. The summit seeks to strongly complement this by deliberately promoting and boosting commercial farming, food processing, and the production of agricultural machinery on a large scale in each of the 36 states and FCT, partnering actively with their respective ministry of agriculture.

Ahead of the inaugural Nigeria Food Surplus Summit, we shall embark on a roadshow to the 36 states and FCT, sensitizing and mobilizing various stakeholders in each domain for the event. The goal of this roadshow, expected to be held from September 1-October 31, 2024. An official delegation, under the auspices of the ministry of agriculture of the 37 states, is expected to attend the summit.

We have prepared a special report titled, “Commercial Bank Lending to the Nigerian Agricultural Industry 2018-2022” to be presented at a media event in August 2024. This report presents data and insights on lending by selected Nigerian commercial banks to the country’s agricultural industry over the past five years: January 2018-December 31, 2022. Copies of this edition of would be distributed specially to the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, the ministry of agriculture of the 36 states (including the FCT equivalent), other critical public sector agencies and bodies, the Abuja-based diplomatic office of the leading trade partners of Nigeria, leading international development organizations in Nigeria, summit partners, and other critical stakeholders. The magazine will be distributed as well to all the summit attendees.

A major highpoint of the 1st Nigeria Food Surplus Summit 2024 will be the presentation of the Nigeria Agribusiness 100 Awards to honour and celebrate 100 outstanding and impactful agribusiness equipment manufacturers and suppliers, food processing companies, and leading commercial farms across the federation. We shall also present the Nigeria Agribusiness Finance Awards to honour and celebrate the country’s deserving commercial banks in two categories: the top 5 biggest lenders to the Nigerian agricultural industry in the past five years (2018-2022), and the top 5 biggest lenders to the industry as a percentage of their total lending during this period. And finally, we shall honour the Nigerian State Governor of the Year in Agribusiness.
