The CannaTech Summit, a prestigious event that drives cannabis industry growth, will be held in Cape Town from 24 to 26 November 2019. This is an African continent first and shows the importance that the industry plays in the South African market. CannaTech is widely recognised as the leading cannabis event globally, bringing together industry leaders from across Africa and the world.
Cannabis product development
Afriplex is privileged to be part of this important event, not only as a participant and sponsor, but also having one of the directors as a speaker. Wayne Robinson, Afriplex business development director, will be a speaker in the Master Class panel discussions at 11.30 on Sunday 24 November 2019. The panel discussion will be about the ‘Cannabis Product Development Processes’ and promises to be an insightful discussion about product development in Africa.

Sustainable SA cannabis industry
Danie Nel, Afriplex MD, says, ‘Our participation in CannaTech Cape Town is a wonderful opportunity to showcase what Afriplex established over the last 20 years in the botanical extraction and contract manufacturing industry. The prospect to export cultivation and processing technology developed by Afriplex and members of the CRI is being realised at this summit. This exciting opportunity will allow us to contribute to the establishment of a sustainable cannabis industry in Africa.’
