Fine Food highlights state's best
30 September 2015
The recent Fine Food Australia Expo held at Sydney Showground put 16 of NSW top niche food producers firmly in the international spotlight.
The Flavours of NSW stand supported by the NSW Department of Industry, attracted buyers from around the world keen to discover more of the flavoursome and unique gourmet produce on offer. The stand also hosted TAFE NSW apprentice chefs and hospitality students from around the state.
The range of produce on offer on the Flavours of NSW stand included Mid North Coast coffee, jams and condiments; simmer sauces and macadamia products from the Northern Rivers; oils, vinegars and fresh fruit juices from the Hunter and Central Coast; Riverina rice and rice products; berries, olive oils and condiments from the southern inland region; and oysters from the South Coast.
Recent winner of the Apprentice of the Year in the ClubsNSW 2015 Chef's Table competition, Brooke Stewart, an apprentice chef from Dubbo RSL was also welcomed at the stand, together with Minister for Regional Development, Skills and Small Business, John Barilaro.
Fine Food Australia allows local producers to build industry contacts and brand awareness to over 30,000 visitors, and to launch new products. Following the 2014 Fine Food Australia, exhibitors on the NSW stand expected sales of between $220,000 and $310,000, with potential export sales of up to $60,000.
With over 1000 suppliers in one place, Fine Food Australia is the largest food industry trade event in Australia and in the Southern Hemisphere. This year's expo ran from 20 to 23 September. Next year's event will be held in Melbourne from 12-16 September 2016.
