foodpro 2023 to deliver the sensory experience to share new product offerings

With the expo floor sold out and education timetables finalised, foodpro is gearing up to be an incredible show, getting underway at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre this Sunday July 23 and running until Wednesday July 26.

“We have more than 400 exhibitors this year and with a wide range of exciting new features, there are endless opportunities to explore new industry products and insights,” said foodpro product manager, Felicity Parker.

“Plus, visitors will have ample opportunity to network and enjoy the show floor.

“One area that we are excited to feature will be the Sensory Experience. This will provide a unique experience for exhibitors to share new product offerings and for visitors to explore what’s new on the market.”

Here, visitors will be able to taste, touch, see and hear the latest insights, ingredients and innovations in food manufacturing. “We know the area will leave people feeling enthused, inspired and ready to bring new product ideas to life,” said Parker.

Key Sensory experiences include:
