Premier Australian international food processing exhibition Foodpro 2011 to be held from 10 July to 13 July is expected to attract over 9,000 key decision makers from Australia’s food and beverage manufacturing and processing industries.
The triennial Foodpro show organised by Diversified Exhibitions Australia is a major Australasian food and beverage industry trade exhibition and considered by attendees as critical to their business, given that this industry sector generates sales and service income of over $100 billion annually, encompassing more than a quarter of Australia’s manufacturing industry.
While employing some 3% of the Australian workforce, the industry sector also accounts for $44.8 billion in trade and exports worth $27.3 billion.
Foodpro 2011 will feature the latest innovations and trends in the food and beverage sector, with more than 300 suppliers from Australia and New Zealand showcasing their wares. This year’s exhibition will fill 21,000m² of space across five halls at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Foodpro is a forum for food and beverage processing and manufacturing exhibitors to present the latest in food innovation, leading-edge technologies and crucial industry developments.
Foodpro will showcase new food manufacturing industry trends as well as the latest in food and beverage processing machinery, services, technical products, ingredients, flavourings, additives, food safety, micro-biology and testing equipment, packaging, handling, storage, transport, plant equipment, hygiene as well as water and waste systems among others.
Foodpro Manager, Peter Petherick believes that Foodpro’s successful track record has contributed to its increasing significance in the food and beverage industry.
Considered one of the most influential and comprehensive food manufacturing events in the Australasian region, Foodpro provides visitors an invaluable opportunity to view the latest products and concepts from highly skilled food manufacturing business suppliers in addition to setting up new business partnerships for future success.
Foodpro has relevance for food and beverage manufacturers across the industry including meat and dairy, confectionery and baking, seafood, fruit and vegetables, soft drink and juice as well as the brewing, wine and spirit industries.
The Foodpro 2011 exhibition is co-located with the 44th annual Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) Convention, which provides visitors with informative seminars relevant to food science and technology, production, processing and influences on food choices within their appropriate industry.
