Harare Agricultural Show

Harare Agricultural Show

Every year for the last 107 years, since 1895, for one whole week the supply chain of the Zimbabwean agricultural sector come together and exhibit their products and services in one location.

Harare Show grounds, on the outskirts of the central business district of Harare, have had the privilege to host this auspicious occasion all these years and this year they welcomed more than 20,000 people from all over the country and the region from Monday 21 August to Saturday 26 August 2017.

The theme this year was “Seed to Food: Innovate. Consolidate. Sustain.” This theme was calling for and integrated approach for all players to move from a position of awareness to a position of action with the alignment and networking of various players in the industry to produce enough food for national consumption.

From seed companies to manufacturing processing companies, from buyers to sellers of final produce, fuel suppliers to mobile companies, competent and motivated farmers to willing financiers and banking institutions and other support service companies - all made an effort to ensure that got some space to exhibit what they could offer this sector.

With a common goal, all players of the value chain networked, rallied consensus and sort collaboration to build solid foundations and relationships to accelerate progress which would improve the socio-economic status and a multiplication effect of the national economy. 

Even with the seriousness of the agricultural industry and the intensity of securing the future of the nation’s food supply, there was room for some fun after a hard day of presentations, negotiations and signing of multi-million-dollar deals. Local entertainment, pubs and restaurants also set up to offer a chilled drink and meal after a long day’s work. Children could come through and spend the day enjoying and tasting some of the food stuff, products and by -products being manufactured locally and then move on to entertainment areas for some games, slides and displays by the version of an African clown on stilts while listening to folklore tales.

If you missed it this year, you have an opportunity in 2018, in the last full week of August, to get a stand and showcase your company’s products that can support or are spinning off from the agricultural industry in Zimbabwe.
