Zim Companies Participated at Zambia Agro Show

ZimTrade, Zimbabwe’s trade development and promotion organisation for the second time, lead Zimbabwe’s participation at Agritech Expo held in Chisamba, Zambia from 27-29 April 2017.

Agritech Expo is a specialised exhibition for the agricultural sector value chain. The Expo is a business-to-business platform for agricultural professionals, from small-scale farmers to commercial enterprises. Agritech provides a platform for companies to engage and conduct business with international buyers in the agricultural industry.

What Zimbabwean companies showcased at the Agritech Show

  • agrochemicals
  • veterinary products
  • fertilisers
  • agricultural equipment and implements, among other products.

Three of the ten Zimbabwean companies set up plots to demonstrate the effectiveness of their fertilisers and herbicides on maize, soyabeans and groundnuts.

Zimbabwe’s inaugural participation at the Expo in 2016 generated a lot of interest from both the Zambian and international buyers hence the need to be present again with a wider range of products.

In 2016, over 17 000 agricultural business decision makers from 29 countries in Africa, America, Europe and Middle East participated in the Expo.

As members of SADC and COMESA, both Zimbabwe and Zambia enjoy preferential access for their qualifying products into each other’s country. Therefore, Zimbabwe has potential to increase exports of products such as agricultural implements and inputs.
