The food industry in Burkina Faso has developed in the last few years
According to Abdoul Kader Kondombo, this fair will bring together a range of expertise in the food industry, industry, and art, equipment and processes, packaging, quality, and hygiene. “It aims to mobilize at least 200 brand exhibitors to specifically meet the needs of producers at all stages of production, with innovative solutions, thereby helping to improve the performance of companies,” said Abdoul Kader Kondombo. One of the major innovations of this edition is the opening of a few stands dedicated to the UEMOA zone, in line with the UEMOA commission that has decreed October as “the month of local consumption throughout the UEMOA zone.”
On the program for this edition, there will be exhibitions-sales, musical entertainment, training, panel discussions, tastings of local dishes, film screenings of Burkinabe works.
Responding to questions from journalists, the president of “Burkina Wa-Mêdô”, Ibrahim Akim Ouédraogo, said that in three years, the perception of Burkinabe on “local consumption” has greatly improved. He added that thanks to Burkin’Daaga, there are producers who have internal and external demands for their products that they cannot fully satisfy.
For exhibition-sales at the fair, speakers informed that registrations are always open with priority given to those who meet the quality standards, on which training was done at the last edition. They added that there are individual exhibition booths, booths for associations, for maquis and restaurants; and that they are always available except for restaurants. The costs of the stands are as follows: $127 (70 000 FCFA) the individual stand or for association of 9 m2, $136 (75 000 FCFA) the stand of 9 m2 for restaurant and $226.9 (125 000 FCFA) the stand of 9 m2 for maquis.
A contest on packaging that meets the standards has also been planned, to reward producers who have distinguished themselves by respecting the standards. The initial budget for this edition, which will be held under the patronage of the President of the National Assembly, Alassane Bala Sakandé, and the sponsorship of His Majesty Wogd Razang-Naaba Poulma, President of the Regional Consular Delegation of the Center-West, amounts to about $116,000 (56 million FCFA), informed the speakers.
