Message from ISO

Dear Industry colleague,

Having demonstrated its pedigree year on year, the Africa Sugar conference needs no introduction. Now into its 8th edition, the event has moved from strength to strength, and enjoys unparalleled support from the key stakeholders in the sugar chain.

The International Sugar Organization (ISO) is pleased to support this conference again, and contribute to proceedings on the day. As Conference Chairman, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this esteemed gathering.

As always, the A listers from industry have been lined up, with new subject matter, interactive debates and not to mention the networking opportunities. The organizers, IBC Asia, are this year working on a new venue for the gala dinner which promises to be a highlight in 2018.
