We're now just a few weeks out from the much-anticipated Fine Food Australia 2017. Are you ready to go? This year’s event promises to be the biggest one yet, with the addition of new product zones and the brand new Commercial Drinks Show, which will bring together the nation’s $16 billion liquor industry. Though similar to its previous editions, Fine Food Australia 2017 remains the home of the latest in food, beverages, equipment, and technology. It is still the best opportunity for you to build connections with your fellow industry professionals and find new customers.
The trade exhibition will be held in a new venue this year - the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, Sydney from September 11th to 14th. As expected, it will be welcoming hundreds of exhibiting brands, including family-owned businesses and the most renowned manufacturers. Here are some of the stand's we're most looking forward to checking out:
Fermented drinks are one of the newest fads right now in the food and beverage scene, and it looks like a trend that's here to stay. So if you’re thinking of adding a healthy option to your fridge, head straight for the Remedy Kombucha stall. Remedy Kombucha, founded by husband and wife Emmet and Sarah Condon, is the biggest Kombucha brewer in Australia. They offer live cultured drinks in different and exciting flavors, from raspberry lemonade and apple to hibiscus and ginger.
Looking for new additions to a menu? Cappuccine Australia has got you covered.

Retailers and manufacturers who want to give their product packaging a new look must pay a visit to the PLUSpak stand.

Take some time to visit their stall during the 4-day event as they will be showcasing their ALL NATURAL retail range of products that feature no artificial flavours and colourings.
The market is on the lookout for healthier food alternatives. This means there’s no better time to offer healthy products than now. Don’t worry, Honest to Goodness can help you fill your inventory. The leading supplier offers a wide selection of organic and natural products, including organic raw honey, organic apple cider vinegar, roasted seaweed snacks, and turmeric latte spice blend, to name a few. Do pop over to their stand for a quick chat with their friendly team, and of course, for some free tastings, too.
Fine Food Australia doesn’t only showcase the latest in food and beverages, it also highlights the newest innovations in technology.
