Fine Food Australia will return to Sydney in 2017, announcing new additions to the exhibition, which will run 11–14 September at the recently reopened International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.

A new event, Commercial Drinks, will launch at this year’s Fine Food Australia, bringing together the country’s $16 billion liquor industry with the $170 billion foodservice and food retail industries.

Fine Food Australia showcases to the industry the latest in food, natural, organic and free-from products, bakery equipment and products, dairy, meat, food packaging, catering equipment, hospitality equipment, international food, beverages, coffee roasters, fit-out and design, and retail technology.

Catering for the growing trend toward healthy alternatives, a new Organics Zone at Fine Food Australia will focus solely on organic products, and will sit alongside the Natural/Free-From zone on the show floor. Another new zone designed to assist food businesses to keep up with design trends is the new Fit Out and Design Zone, where visitors can be exposed to the latest in restaurant, caf and store design. 

Fine Food Australia in 2017 will also introduce the Start Up Zone, a curation of young and innovative businesses that are keen to display new, unique products to the visitors at Fine Food Australia.

Regular features will also return to Fine Food Australia in 2017, including the free line-up of business sessions at the Talking Food Stage, where industry insiders and leaders will share their knowledge, and talk about trends and issues. Also returning is the Devondale Caf Stage, the Innovations in Patisserie Stage, the ACF Culinary Challenge, the Official Great Aussie Pie Competition, the Bake Skills Australia, and the Live Bakery.

Registration opens in March 2017. Both Fine Food Australia and Commercial Drinks are strictly trade only events.
