foodpro, Australasia’s largest and longest running food manufacturing trade show will be held in Melbourne for the first time this year from June 22-25. 

Held once every three years, foodpro 2014 will span over 20,000sqm at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre showcasing every aspect of the Australasian Food Processing industry.

About 10,000 people are expected to see more than 300 suppliers of the food and beverage sectors at the most prestigious high-profile trade event for the industry within the Asia Pacific region.

One section of the show will cover processing equipment for meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables, while a technical area will cover food science and technology, including ingredients, additives and flavourings, laboratory equipment and Food Safety. 

The event will also have a dedicated plant equipment section featuring water treatment, doors and flooring, pumps, and a complete range of food plant services.  In addition, a vast packaging and handling area specialised for the food industry will also be on show.

foodpro Exhibition Manager, Peter Petherick, said the move to Victoria is a positive one for the state’s local food and manufacturing sector and would attract a whole new audience to the event.

“Victoria accounts for close to half of the country’s prepared food products and employs more than 70,000 people within food and beverage manufacturing,” Mr Petherick said.

“To have foodpro on your doorstep for the first time is a great opportunity for the whole food manufacturing industry.” 

Mr Petherick said next year’s foodpro would be one of the largest ever, featuring the latest products, innovative ideas and technological advances to the market from around the world.

The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology Incorporated (AIFST) will hold its 47th Annual Convention in conjunction with the foodpro exhibition.
