What's on at foodpro 2021
Now registration is open for foodpro 2021, let us delve into what to expect at this year’s event.
Hosted this year at Sydney Showground, foodpro promises to reunite and reconnect the industry, featuring a show floor of Australia’s top suppliers in food and beverage manufacturing.
foodpro will bring together manufacturing and processing decision makers and buyers for four days of collaboration, product launches, networking and new technology. foodpro is the only face-to-face industry event of its kind to be taking place in 2021, making this a unique opportunity to conduct business and bring all the expertise together in one place.
Event manager, Melissa Clendinen said: “This year’s event is more important than ever with our food industry being struck by major events such as the bushfires and the Coronavirus.
“What we do now really matters — not just for our own industry, but the health of the entire country.
“The return of foodpro and associated networking is a major turning point for our industry in creating a COVID-normal Australian economy and getting people back to doing business together.”
