Considered the largest annual sugar gathering in Africa, the event was co-hosted by APAMO, the Mozambican Sugar Producers Association.

The conference gathered international experts, key speakers, governments and associations and top players across the industry chain for a rich programme of conferences on the sugar cane industry.

Topics ranging from ways to improve sugar productivity in Africa to the changing international sugar trade environment, as well as dedicated focus presentations on the sugar industry in different African countries (Mozambique, Ethiopia, Uganda, Morocco, South Africa, Ghana and Malawi) were brought to light at the conference.

Case IH, which provides sugarcane harvesting solutions, participated as Gold Sponsor of the event for the sixth year in a row in collaboration with its official distributor in Mozambique, Entreposto Comercial de Moçambique.   

The company demonstrated part of the Case IH line-up to support sugar cane producers in every phase of the process with a full range of high efficiency equipment for the industry, from bush clearing to harvesting and transportation to the mill.
