Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 28th June 2011

From July 10-13, the Australasian food manufacturing industry will descend upon Sydney for the much anticipated triennial iconic event: Foodpro.

Foodpro 2011 has already exceeded the expectations of organisers with a record-breaking number of exhibitors, confidently maintaining its status as the largest food processing exhibition in the Asia Pacific.

As the biggest and most complete exhibition yet, more than 320 Foodpro exhibitors will fill five halls of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, equating to more than 22,000 square metres.

Foodpro Manager, Peter Petherick is confident about the success of this year’s exhibition.

“Since its inception in the 1960s, Foodpro has become the most influential and comprehensive food manufacturing event in the Australasian region, and is much anticipated by the food and beverage processing industry.

“Visitors recognise Foodpro as an invaluable opportunity to view the latest showcase of products and ideas from the cream of the food manufacturing business suppliers. Extraordinarily cost effective, it enables exhibitors and attendees alike to make face-to-face contact while appreciating the full breadth of their respective industry sectors,” he said.

Foodpro 2011 has assembled the most concentrated convergence of the industry’s most powerful ideas and product showcases including newest 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, water and waste systems, and much more.

This paramount exhibition presents equipment and inspiration to cater to industries from meat and dairy to confectionery and baking, seafood to fruit and vegetables, beverage, soft drink and juice, even the brewing, wine and spirit industries.

Foodpro 2011 will be co-located with the 44th annual Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) Conference which will be concerned with how food science and technology, including food production and processing, influences food choices.
