#AboriFS19 || Reports from the Abóri Food Design Summit Day 2

The highlight of day two of Abóri Food Summit was the keynote address by Paul Newnham.

Paul Newnham

According to Chef Michael Elegbede, “It was an amazing share and opportunity to connect chefs and the community at large in Nigeria to Chefs Manifesto!” ( A Nonprofit Organization that basically sees to the need of “2 billion people who don’t have access to nutritious and sufficient food” )

The discussion on ‘Our Food Identity’ continued with the panel that had likes of Chef Tiyan Alile, Uzo Orimalade, Yewande Kazeem, Latifah Adams, Toyin Onigbanjo, Folayemi Agusto and many more.

They deliberated on topics relating to ‘Investment in livelihoods and nutritious food that is accessible and affordable to all’ also ‘Culinary education and food safety’.

Check out some of the exhibitions :

The exhibition was curated by Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly)

The summit generally is a step in the right direction and we can’t wait to inculcate everything learnt from this summit into Nigeria’s food system.
