Fine Food Australia Returns to Sydney for 2017: Bringing New Trends and New Product Zones
With over 33 years’ experience in the food industry, Fine Food Australia is undoubtedly the leader in all things foodservice. An ever-evolving iconic event, Fine Food Australia is announcing several important additions to its 2017 Sydney event. The most exciting news: a brand new event, Commercial Drinks, will launch at and co-locate with this year’s Fine Food Australia, bringing together the country’s $16 billion liquor industry with the $170 billion foodservice and food retail industries. This will create a formidable event for the hospitality industry, and 2017 will see the largest Fine Food Australia ever staged.
Moving to its new home at the new world-class International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, Fine Food Australia 2017 will celebrate not only Sydney’s incredible food and drink scene, but that of the entire nation. Every September, Fine Food Australia showcases to the industry the latest in food, natural, organic and free-from products, bakery equipment and products, dairy, meat, food packaging, catering equipment, hospitality equipment, international food, beverages, coffee roasters, fit-out and design, and retail technology.
The addition of the new Commercial Drinks Show to the event marks the introduction of the country’s only event totally dedicated to the on-premise liquor industry, and will help those in industry capitalise on the ongoing consumer demand for unique, handcrafted alcoholic beverages.
Australian consumers are increasingly demanding higher quality food and drink, healthier options, and more premium dining experiences. Fine Food Australia is where these trends come to life each year, and is the place for food operators to find new ideas to grow customer loyalty.
Catering for the growing obsession for healthy alternatives, a new Organics Zone at Fine Food Australia will focus solely on organic products, and will sit alongside the Natural/Free-From zone on the show floor. Another new zone designed to assist food businesses to keep up with design trends is the new Fit Out and Design Zone, where visitors can be exposed to the latest in restaurant, café and store design.
Another exciting first for Fine Food Australia in 2017 is the new Start Up Zone, a curation of young and innovative businesses that are keen to display new, unique products to the visitors at Fine Food Australia.
Regular and much loved features also return to Fine Food Australia in 2017, including the free line-up of business sessions at the Talking Food Stage, where industry insiders and leaders will share their knowledge, and talk about trends and issues. Also returning is the Devondale Café Stage, the Innovations in Patisserie Stage, the ACF Culinary Challenge, the Official Great Aussie Pie Competition, the much loved Bake Skills Australia, and the Live Bakery.
Regularly attracting an audience in excess of 20,000, Fine Food Australia is the most important destination for any business in the foodservice industry looking to grow, find new ideas and refine skills. The event is like no other, and is the only place for the industry to gain new insights, product innovations, and expert advice, all in one place.
