Zim dairy conference sets another record high attendance
Published: 27 September 2013
The just ended 9th East and Southern African Dairy Associations (Esada) conference and exhibition has set a record for registering the highest number of delegates in the history of the organisation.

Formed in 2004, Esada has the mission to lobby for policies that promote the growth of dairy sector and increase trade in dairy products.

Esada chairman Dr Kipkirui Lang'at told delegates attending the threeday conference in the capital that over 450 participants were taking part at the three-day conference, with over 130 of them coming from Kenya.

"The number of delegates we have received this year is a record for Esada," Lang'at said to applause from the delegates.

The event, being held under the theme "Enhancing Africa food security, the milky way" is being attended by foreign delegates from countries including Egypt, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Rwanda, Madagascar, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia.

Some participants are from countries which are not members of Esada including Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, Eritrea, Poland, Denmark and United Arab Emirates.

The record attendance follows hard on the heels of the one at the 20th session of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) which Zimbabwe and Zambia hosted in August.

Dairibord Holding chief executive officer Anthony Mandiwanza said hosting the conference put Zimbabwe on the world map.

"It is good for Zimbabwe to be able to host such as occasion after successfully co-hosting the UNWTO. It puts Zimbabwe on the right map to showcase its potential and hospitality," he said.
