foodpro is reuniting the industry and gathering the nation’s food manufacturing and processing decision makers and buyers for four days of collaboration, product launches, new technology and expert education.
Following events including Australia’s devastating bushfires and of course, the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, now more than ever what we do matters.
“What we do now really matters – not just for our own industry, but the growth of the entire country,” says Melissa Clendinen, foodpro Event Manager.
“foodpro is where the industry’s brightest minds join forces and generate solutions that will take us towards a more sustainable and safer world.
“foodpro is a great opportunity for all stakeholders within the food and beverage supply chain to unite and learn how we can all work together.”
The 2021 event will include a free speaker series, and foodpro is partnering with leading industry associations including the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and Food Innovation Australia (FIAL) to bring attendees the latest insights and trends from nation’s leading experts.
“The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is pleased to partner with FoodPro; the largest trade exhibition in Australia specifically designed for the entire food value chain. As the peak professional body for packaging training and education in Australasia we look forward to working with the FoodPro organisers and developing a unique educational offering for the visitors that covers Circular and Sustainable Packaging Design and more,” says Nerida Kelton, Executive Director, AIP.
The full seminar program will be announced soon, however visitors can expect to attend sessions on topics including traceability, food safety, Covid recovery and future food trends.
foodpro is also partnering with the Annual Convention of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) who will be running their conference alongside this year’s event, bringing the latest thinking in food technology and processing.
