Fine food opportunity for NSW food producers

Media release | 7 March 2017

Fine food producers from across NSW 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.

The NSW Government will support selected NSW food businesses to attend Fine Food Australia in September, and nominations are now open until 31 March.

“This event is considered Australia’s largest trade exhibition for the food and beverage industry, so it presents a great opportunity for food businesses to promote their products and services to a very large, targeted audience,” said Graeme Cuthbert, NSW Department of Industry Skills and Economic Development Acting Deputy Secretary.

“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.

“NSW is home to a diverse range of high quality food products and associated products and services that compete successfully in the global marketplace.

“At Fine Food Australia, NSW companies can meet potential buyers, get up to date with the latest trends and check out their competition.”

The Department of Industry is now calling for expressions of interest from NSW businesses to be part of the NSW stand at Fine Food Australia this year.

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 overseas and interstate,” Mr Cuthbert said.

“I encourage NSW food producers who want to grow their business to submit their expressions of interest by 31 March.”

Fine Food Australia will run from 11-14 September at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour.

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.
