Covid concerns prompt foodpro postponement


Australia’s leading food and beverage manufacturing event, foodpro, has been postponed until 10-13 October.

Originally scheduled for 25-28 July, it will still be held at Sydney Showground and registration will remain open.

The event provides the opportunity for businesses to explore what is new on the market, hear from leading experts and exchange ideas. It has been four years since it was last held.

Organisers said they took their duty of care to our visitors, exhibitors, partners and staff very seriously and believed that postponement was the most appropriate action, to ensure the best and safest show experience for everyone.

The event is free for all industry professionals:
