Nairobi will host the 29th Annual International Association of Operative Millers Mideast & Africa Region (IAOM MEA) Conference and Expo, Africa’s biggest processed cereal grains forum, from October 22 to October 25 at the Movenpick Hotel & Residences.

Ugandan farmers will be among the more than 500 delegates, including executives of the grain processing industry, grain traders and technology providers expected to attend this conference.

The IAOM MEA, which connects local flour millers with international grain milling experts, machine suppliers, traders and other allied professionals, will be hosted by the Cereal Millers Association (CMA).
The host chairman of the IAOM will be Nicholas Hutchinson, the group managing director of UNGA Holdings Ltd.

Some of the key issues to be discussed, led by keynote speaker Dan Basse, president and founder of AgResource Co include trade tariffs and the declining world wheat export stocks and how they will offer a dynamic world grain market in 2019.
