foodpro stages its comeback


The exciting food manufacturing exhibition is being postponed - but is set to return bigger and brighter than ever

Diversified Communications Australia, organisers of foodpro, have announced the cancellation of the planned 2021 exhibition due to the impact of continued border uncertainty and extended lockdowns.

The event will now return 23- 26 July 2023 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. 

Since the postponement back in June, the foodpro team have been working closely with the industry and monitoring the COVID-19 situation and multiple lockdowns across the nation.

At time of press, the situation in Sydney is showing little sign of improvement, so the difficult decision has been made to cancel foodpro 2021, which was scheduled to run
10-13 October at Sydney Showground. 

The event aims to bring together Australia’s entire food manufacturing community, connecting exhibitors and visitors from across the country. It’s important to sustain a high standard of event delivery, and without continued certainty around borders remaining open foodpro have made the tough call not to run this year. 

Although disappointed in not being able to host the event in 2021, the foodpro team appreciate the continued support they have received from exhibitors, partners, sponsors, speakers, and suppliers. The event team are committed to reuniting the industry at foodpro in 2023, 23-26 July at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. 

Ahead of 2023, foodpro have some exciting events coming up in 2022 to support the industry…
