FAN heads to Fine Food Sydney

In September this year nine FAN members will head to Sydney to take part in Fine Food on a Sunshine Coast stand. The event, held between 11-14 September, is a showcase of the food industry’s latest products and attracts national and international buyers from restaurants, cafes, bakeries, retailers, caterers, bars, hotels and other food businesses.

This year Commercial Drinks, an industry event dedicated to bars and venues, will run alongside Fine Food and showcase top craft and artisan beer, wine and spirits brands. With more than 30,000 trade visitors expected to attend the event, Fine Food is a significant opportunity for our industry to spread their wings beyond the region.

In addition to being able to explore new market opportunities and gather valuable feedback about their products, the participating businesses will benefit from being exposed to over 1,000 exhibiting brands and have the opportunity to discover new tastes, learn and network.

Of the 11 companies co-exhibiting and providing product for a product display on the stand, FAN is delighted that nine are FAN members. They are:
Walter’s Artisan Bread
COYO
Montville Coffee
Belladotti
QCamel
KOKOPOD Chocolate
Kenilworth Country Foods
SunLife Superfoods
The Country Chef Bakery Co.

Fine Food’s Event Director Minnie Constan will be visiting the Sunshine Coast on 3 August to meet with our exhibitors and share her tips for getting the most out of the event.

Other FAN members who will have their own stand at the event include Gourmet Garden and The Fresh Chai Co.

This year’s delegation has been made possible thanks to a partnership between the Sunshine Coast Council and FAN. In future years we hope to open up opportunities for exhibitors in the Greater Sunshine Coast region.
