Procurement Experts Honored at the 3rd Africa Procurement & Supply Chain Awards

A number of over forty awards were conferred on procurement and supply chain experts within Ghana, Kenya & Nigeria at the third edition of the Africa Procurement & Supply Chain Awards (APSCA) held on Friday in Accra.

The event which was graced by industry stakeholders was held under the  theme, “Celebrating Achievements of Africa’s Supply Chain & Procurement Sector” and organized as a hybrid event, with some awardees at the grounds physically while others joined virtually.

 Addressing the awardees, Mr. Akin Naphtal, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of InstinctWave, organisers of the awards scheme said, the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the supply chains of several companies negatively and hence the need for significant change in supply chain strategies to help adapt to the new normal in a post Covid-19 era.

Mr. Naphtal further indicated that, the purpose for the awards scheme was to celebrate leading actors in the procurement and supply chain sector. 

“The awards will recognize leading procurement experts, teams and top procurement & supply chain organizations, whose outstanding leadership and practices have raised the standards of procurement within the profession, showcasing top ethics, best practices, tact and brilliance in managing organizations’ supplies as well as promoting business growth and sustainability.” he stated.
