The world’s largest dedicated expo of sustainable agriculture solutions

When GFIA was launched in 2014 at the invitation of the Abu Dhabi government, it leveraged partnerships with 40 powerful organisations including the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank, that wanted a platform to show the world how technology gives us the only real chance of feeding nine billion people without destroying the environment.

With an established edition in Abu Dhabi, the first edition of GFIA Europe took place in the Netherlands, the region’s largest exporter of agricultural produce, in May 2017.

In 2018 GFIA Europe will be co-located with VIV Europe and Future Food Manufacturing to bring thousands of key buyers and decisions makers concerned with smart food production from around the world to Utrecht, the Netherlands.

GFIA is your platform to do business with thousands of buyers and procurement managers from food producers and growers, agribusinesses, governments and resellers & distributors.
