#AboriFS19 || Reports from the Abóri Food Design Summit Day 1

The discussion about food in general have become a thing of keen interest in the hearts of many food enthusiast. Abóri coined from languages of the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria was another all-encompassing platform where discussion about food, not just any food but the Nigerian food system was discussed.

Today being the first day of the summit discussion was based on ‘Our Food Identity’. The summit kicked off, with Midunu from Ghana who gave the opening address then later other panelists joined in the discuss.

According to Abóri, @abori.ngr
“Our goal is to understand the Nigerian Food system better, design it to be more sustainable for generations to come.”



Also at the event was an opening exhibition of all kinds of the African Indigenous Kitchen Utensils and Food items. This was curated by Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly)

Abóri Food Summit ended but not with attendees having nice indigenous dishes before the event finally came to an end.

The summit continues tommorow and it runs through Saturday.
