FIAL looks to promote innovative food businesses

The first Australian book to celebrate innovation in the food and agribusiness industry was launched at the Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology conference, ‘The Pulse of the Industry’ earlier this year.

The book ‘Celebrating Australian Food and Agribusiness Innovations’ published by Food Innovation Australia Ltd (FIAL), showcases 50 of the country’s leading innovations in agribusiness, food, drink and packaging, as chosen by a panel of technical experts from industry, academia and research.

Due to the resounding praise and recognition the book received, FIAL has decided to publish a second edition. FIAL is inviting companies to submit an expression of interest for their chance to showcase their achievement and gain national exposure through being included in the book. Expressions of interest are open online through the FIAL website.

Land of Plenty Food Co. were featured in the first edition, and Craig Rochat (Owner) believes that being featured in the book has given his business added credibility within the industry.

“Being recognised in the FIAL Innovation Book has given us so much credibility when talking to other businesses and companies… it has helped us position ourselves more competitively within the industry”, said Craig.

FIAL is calling for all businesses to share their innovation challenge and solution by submitting an expression of interest. An expert panel of judges from the industry and research sectors will assess all applications. Inclusion in the “Celebrating Australian Food and Agribusiness Innovations” second edition, can give businesses the real edge to market themselves and share their innovation journey with the rest of Australia.
