The 6th plastprintpack & agrofood Ghana 2023 a great success!

Plastics | Printing | Packaging

The 2023 edition of plastprintpack & agrofood Ghana 2023 was a great success. This was the resounding opinion of all exhibitors, trade visitors, speakers and conference delegates.

Organised by fairtrade in collaboration with their local partners Geovision, the exhibition & conference took place from 21 to 23 November 2023 at the Trade Center Arena in the Accra International Conference Centre.

A great success, not only because of the countless new business opportunities that were established between the exhibitors and their Ghanaian and West African partners, but also because of the lively and warm atmosphere that characterised this event.
