The latest food processing technology from around the globe will be on display when foodpro 2017 opens its doors in Sydney this weekend.

The foodpro exhibition, held every three years in Australia, is a one-stop destination of technology and solutions to all businesses in the food processing and manufacturing industry.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic food-manufacturing event.

Industry experts will provide valuable insight to businesses on risk mitigation, trends, and techniques to stay profitable. Beyond the latest equipment and technology, adherence to the laws of food labeling and compliance are paramount to a successful business.

Through seminars such as the Food Authority of NSW’s ‘Labelling and the Law’, visitors will receive access to accurate information and technical knowledge in addition to the expansive range of equipment on show.

Co-locating with foodpro is the Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology‘s (AIFST) annual convention, featuring expert speakers from a broad range of industries.

Navigating the export and regulatory market

AIFST’s Annual Convention hosts a full two-day program with a line up of speakers that include Barry Irvin, AM, of Bega Cheese; Professor Martin Cole of CSIRO and Brianna Casey of Foodbank.

The theme of the two-day convention is the Future of Food, with more 600 delegates expected to attend. Sessions will cover the consumer of the future, managing emerging threats and vulnerabilities, navigating the export and regulatory market, and insights into current scientific research that will underpin the next 50 years of the Australian food industry.

foodpro will be taking over the newly built International Convention Centre Exhibition Building at Darling Harbour with two levels covering more than 23,500 sqm dedicated to exhibition space.
