Australian Pavilion set to expand by 15 per cent for FHA-Food & Beverage 2020

FHA-Food & Beverage is Asia’s largest food and beverage trade event that brings together the global food and hospitality industry and will be held from 31 March – 3 April 2020.

FHA has over 40 years of success in having the most comprehensive selection of high quality international products – making it the international sourcing platform for buyers in Asia. The event has expanded into two mega events – FHA-Equipment, Coffee, Bakery & Tea and FHA-Food & Beverage, to provide an enhanced experience and personalised engagement, to meet diverse demands of the food and hospitality industry.

FHA-Food & Beverage is the key business platform enabling the growth of the food and industry in Asia and beyond.

Export Solutions is the Australian Representative for FHA- Food & Beverage and have assisted Australian companies with their participation in FHA and coordinated the Australian Pavilion for the past 10 years.

Philip Litton, Director of Export Solutions says: ‘We have secured even more space for the Australian Pavilion at FHA-Food & Beverage in 2020, in the same great location in Hall 8 at Singapore Expo close to major distributors and other key international pavilions. The last edition of FHA in 2018 was a huge success, with the participation of 164 Australian exhibitors including nine state governments, industry bodies and government agencies’.

‘FHA is a must-attend trade show for Australian food and beverage companies looking to export to Asia. Whether you’re a new exporter, or one of the biggest names in the industry, the event provides the opportunity to showcase your products to real buyers from across Asia’.

“Our aim for the upcoming edition of FHA is to redefine participants’ journey at the events to enable more targeted and robust interaction, so that they can focus on strengthening existing partnerships or explore new collaborations. At FHA-Food & Beverage, we have new profiles such as FoodTech, Natural & Organics and Meat, to name a few, and supporting these profiles with conferences and seminars. We have also developed new initiatives such as the FHA Buyers Programme to attract top quality buyers from the region to the event,” says Martyn Cox, Event Director of Hospitality, Food & Beverage – Singapore, Informa Markets.

Australian food and beverage products enjoy an unburnished reputation in the Asian region for their high quality, safety and reliability. We are confident that these new initiatives and activities, coupled with the increasing interest in Australian brands, will ensure the presence of top buyers at the show”, he adds.

NSW’s best invited to Fine Food Australia table

NSW food and beverage companies are being offered a chance to expand their business in national and global markets with a subsidised place on the NSW Government’s stand at Fine Food Australia.

Executive Director Industry Trade and Investment, Kylie Bell, said a dozen spots are up for grabs on the NSW stand at the southern hemisphere’s largest food and beverage show.

“Over 1,000 exhibitors and 26,000 visitors from 50 countries attend Fine Food Australia, providing a huge opportunity for NSW companies to win new business.

“We’re calling on regional and metropolitan companies that can showcase the great depth and innovation that is occurring right across our food and beverage industry.

“For exhibitors, Fine Food Australia will be a massive chance to meet leading suppliers, negotiate deals, expand networks, and learn the latest ideas and trends,” Ms. Bell said.

NSW’s food and beverage manufacturing industry has 3,600 businesses that employ nearly 70,000 people – almost a third of the national industry – with exports growing 9.6 per cent in 2017-18 to reach $5.6 billion.

“Fast-growing middle classes in emerging countries, particularly in Asia, are clamouring for our clean, green and safe food and beverage products,” Bell said.

“To capitalise on this demand we’ve launched the NSW Food and Beverage Industry Development Strategy to grow the industry, build business capability, improve collaboration among key stakeholders and drive job creation, skills development and investment.”

“By participating in Fine Food Australia and implementing this strategy, we’re backing the industry to tackle the challenges and opportunities posed by new technologies, the availability of skilled labour, diversifying consumer tastes, growing global demand, and access to markets,” Ms. Bell said.

Fine Food Australia 2019 will be held at the International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour from 9-12 September.

Innovative food and beverage companies can apply from now until 26 April for a spot on the NSW stand by visiting Fine Food Australia 2019 with successful companies to be notified in May.
