The food deficit is one of the most serious problems affecting Africa, with serious shortages menacing millions of its inhabitants. In order to deal with this problem, new dynamic agricultural policies are eing instituted by the continent’s governments in considerable expenses due to the spectacular increases in the real prices of food products.
With a view to encouraging cooperation in this field, based on the development of local food products, the Association of African Trade Promotion Organizations has prepared within the framework of its Work Programme, the present Directory of the Principal African Importers and Exporters of Food Products.
In preparing this document, which gives the names and addresses of potential African buyers and sellers of food products, AATPO would wish to encourage the basic food-stuffs towards deficit stuck regions.
To make it richer and more comprehensive, the present Food Products Directory will be periodically brought up-to-date with the help of the African countries concerned.
