for sustainable agriculture products made during GFIA 2015 GFIA is your platform to increase sales to farmers, government buyers, NGOs and resellers from 80+ countries.

The world's most important event for food production

Innovation gives us the only real chance of feeding the world without destroying the environment. It gives us food security, increases crop yields, improves soil health, saves water and empowers communities in developing countries.

GFIA is an exhibition and conference that exists to present these innovations to farmers, to connect buyers and sellers around the world and to promote sustainable agriculture as the only solution for increasing food production and combating climate change.
