AFSTA was formally established in March 2000 during and inaugural congress in South Africa where Kenya was elected as the host country for the Secretariat. The African Seed Trade Association arose out of the need to have a regional representative body for the seed industry, which could also serve to promote the development of private seed enterprises.

This developed into a preparatory meeting held in Malawi in April 1999 where an Ad Hoc working group was nominated. The group developed a draft constitution, by laws, and budgets, which were finalised at a meeting in Kenya in August 1999. Currently membership stands at 92 and AFSTA now has diplomatic status.
