Origin Africa is both an event and an ongoing effort dedicated to improving African trade. We collaborate with all stakeholders – from African farmers to U.S. retailers – to develop, guide and promote African trade in the following sectors: apparel, cut flowers, specialty foods home decor and fashion accessories.
Many educated, talented and skilled African designers and entrepreneurs are quickly and indelibly changing their countries. Origin Africa matches their enthusiasm with experienced industry leaders to facilitate, coordinate and advance “trade, not aid” efforts, while the Origin Africa event continues to attract and invite the most innovative minds to attend.
