After three stellar exposés of the biggest culinary experience in Africa, the GTBank Food and Drink Festival is getting bigger for the 4th edition, which will hold for 4 days from Sunday, 28th April, to Wednesday 1st May 2019 at the GTCentre, Plot 1, Water Corporation Drive, Oniru, Lagos.

Created in 2016 by leading African financial institution, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, the GTBank Food and Drink Festival has become the premier culinary event in Africa, bringing together tens of thousands of people from across the continent and beyond to support and celebrate Nigeria’s vibrant and burgeoning small businesses in the food retail sector.

Over the last three years, the event has hosted more than 450,000 people, featured dozens of entrepreneurial master classes by international chefs and food business experts and launched or propelled the businesses of hundreds of entrepreneurs in the food retail industry.

The event will also feature a series of masterclasses and cookery classes facilitated by renowned food and drink experts from around the world. In addition, there will be a farmers’ market for the sale of fresh and organic produce as well as a showcase of some of the finest street foods in Africa’s largest city.

In line with its family theme, the 4-day event will also feature exciting games and fun exercises designed to thrill and entertain children all day long.

Commenting on the 2019 GTBank Food and Drink Festival, the Managing Director and

Chief Executive Office or Guaranty Trust Bank Plc, Segun Agbaje, said; "We are delighted

to bring to our customers, small business owners and food lovers across the continent and

beyond, another edition of an event that is second to none in delivering the finest culinary

experience in Africa. This year, we are taking our commitment to promoting enterprise in

the SME sector further by giving small businesses more opportunities to connect with

consumers and business experts from around the world."

He further stated that, "At GTBank, we will continue to focus on promoting enterprise in

food and fashion, because we know that by investing in both sectors, we are propelling

local entrepreneurs to dominate two critical sectors of our economy."

Guaranty Trust Bank Plc is regarded by industry watchers as one of the best run financial

institutions across its subsidiary countries and serves as a role model within the financial

service industry due to its bias for world-class corporate governance standards, excellent

service quality, and innovation.
