FoodproBilled as the largest show of its kind ever in Australasia, Foodpro, the pre-eminent trade event for the food and beverage processing industry across the region, returns to Sydney on Sunday 10 to Wednesday 13 July 2011.

Showcasing the most comprehensive display of innovative food processing developments and technologies, Foodpro is certainly the imperative triennial destination for the food and beverage industry.

This year Foodpro will confidently fill five large halls at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, expanding from four halls in 2008 – the largest show of its kind.

Foodpro Manager, Peter Petherick is enthusiastic about the popularity of the trade show among visitors and exhibitors alike.

“Since its inception in the 1960s, Foodpro has become the most influential and comprehensive food manufacturing event in the Australasian region.

“For visitors, it’s an invaluable opportunity to view the latest products and concepts from highly skilled food manufacturing business suppliers. Foodpro will certainly be a diary date for those who wish to be inspired, crystallise strategies or set new business partnerships for future success. It’s the event to attend so you can keep your finger on the pulse when it comes to what’s now and what’s next,” he said.

Foodpro is a remarkable 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.

The Foodpro 2011 exhibition is co-located with the 44th annual Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) Conference, which provides visitors with informative seminars concerning food science and technology, production, processing and influences on food choices within their appropriate industry.
