ABOUT AFC

The biennial Africa Fairtrade Convention brings together African smallholder farmers, workers from hired labour plantations and other stakeholders from across the continent and beyond to improve the livelihoods of producers in Africa and the Middle East. During the multiday event producers and stakeholders discuss how trade conditions, market access and producer support can be improved; in the meantime strengthening their networks, building relationships and sowing the seeds of new partnerships.

Who Attends?

The AFC puts small holder farmers and workers at the center of the debate. Other participants from across Africa and beyond include international traders, industry professionals, NGOs and Fairtrade partners. In 2016, 400 participants attended the event:
