Fine Food opportunity for NSW food producers
Local fine food producers have the opportunity to promote their products to thousands of national and international buyers at the Fine Food Australia event in Sydney later this year.
Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams said the NSW Government would support selected NSW food businesses to attend Fine Food Australia in September.
“This event is considered Australia’s largest trade exhibition for the food and beverage industry, so it presents a great opportunity for local food businesses to promote their products and services to a very large, targeted audience.
“Fine Food Australia presents new and innovative products from around Australia and from more than 45 other countries, as well as live demonstrations, masterclasses and industry-recognised competitions.
“At Fine Food Australia, participating NSW companies can meet potential buyers, get up to date with the latest trends and check out their competition.
“I encourage local food producers who want to grow their business to submit their expressions of interest to be on the NSW stand at Fine Food Australia by 24 March,” Mrs Williams said.
Past exhibitor Eric Robinson from The Other Chef said, “The experience of showcasing our produce to such a wider audience is an amazing opportunity. I highly recommend producers apply for support to attend this outstanding event.”
Minister for Industry Niall Blair said NSW was home to a diverse range of high quality food products and associated products and services that competed successfully in the global marketplace.
“Helping regional enterprises to take part in trade shows is just one way the NSW Government supports businesses to grow, find new markets and create jobs.
“This is the 17th year that the NSW Government has supported businesses to take part in Fine Food Australia.
“Participants on the NSW stand in 2016 reported that they generated leads from both interstate and overseas.
“The annual show, which alternates between Sydney and Melbourne, attracts almost 27,000 visitors, 4,500 buyers and more than 1,000 Australian and international exhibitors.”
Fine Food Australia runs from 11-14 September at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour and Expressions of Interest close on 31 March.
