The first African Brewing Conference organized by VLB Berlin and DuPont Industrial Biosciences will take place in from 20 to 22 May 2019 in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.
As joint organizers, VLB Berlin and DuPont aim to provide an open platform for education and networking for the brewing industry in Africa.

The conference will be held in English, with topics covering the full supply chain of beer production, including raw materials, process optimization, sustainability, brewing technology, application of enzymes, product development and quality aspects.
“Africa is currently the region in the world with the fastest growth in the brewing industry, and Ethiopia is one of the top four beer producers with a lot of momentum,” said Josef Fontaine, Ph.D., Managing Director of VLB Berlin. “With the support of DuPont and other companies, we are looking forward to establish a new platform for education and networking in this continent.”
