foodpro, Australasia’s iconic food manufacturing event returns for its 50th year in 2017 to the new world-class International Convention Centre (ICC).

Since it first ran in 1967, foodpro has played an important role in the growth of the food processing, manufacturing and packaging industries and has contributed to the development and significance of the industry to Australia.

foodpro 2017 – set to be the largest ever staged –  provides a unique opportunity to connect, network and do business with industry peers. The event will showcase products and innovations from specialist suppliers around Australia and the world that are relevant to all aspects of the food manufacturing industry including: meat and seafood; value-add processing; beverages; dairy; fresh food; and shelf foods.

The event will feature four key precincts: food processing technology; food packaging; plant equipment; and food technology. Access to new trends will be priority as well as insight into key issues facing the industry such as traceability, food safety and sustainability.


A new initiative will also be launched at foodpro in partnership with Food Innovation Australia Ltd (FIAL).

The Supply Chain Integrity Zone will focus on traceability and audit compliance solutions for small manufacturers. Companies across various stages of the supply chain including materials, processing integrity, packaging integrity, shipping and receivables as well as quality management solutions will be represented, allowing manufacturers to discuss end-to-end solutions with suppliers best suited to their business.

Australia has a global reputation for high safety and quality standards. For food manufacturers to stay up-to-date, they must be compliant and competitive, adapt to new technology and keep ahead of developments in the industry.

With education a key focus for the show, foodpro will provide answers and expertise with free seminars covering a range of topics such as trends, insights and case studies geared to the Australian market. Visitors will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts, engage in topical discussions and learn from peers.
