In recognition of the country’s leadership in agriculture Africa, organisers of Aviana Africa has shifted focus to Nigeria where it hoped to convene a large agriculture forum that will feature latest innovations in the industry and encourage economic cooperation among nations.
The Aviana Africa which has now given birth to Aviana Nigeria has been in existence in other countries like Kenya, Uganda, India and South Africa.

The expo will offer a unique productive B2B opportunity between the world’s leading agricultural and agribusiness stakeholders, company, farmers, government agencies, farmers associations and non-governmental organisations, NGOs, to formulate policies and business opportunities that will enhance the development of agriculture, encourage investment, international trade, market networking, skill acquisition and Tech-Know-How.
Key sector Associations like the Fishery Society of Nigeria, Animal Science of Nigeria, ECOWAS Farmers Association, Poultry Association of Nigeria, Crop Life Nigeria, OLAM Group International and Feed Mill Manufacturers Association of Nigeria among others are collaborating to ensure success of the event.
The forum is expected to promote business in agrochemical, agriculture input, seeds, fertilizer, equipment/tractors, agro food and raw materials.
