FoodTech Qld

Thu 7-Fri 8 July 2022, 10am-4pm AEST

Combining a food and beverage manufacturing trade show, a two-day conference and networking events, foodpro’s FoodTech Qld 2022 on Queensland’s Gold Coast is your opportunity to connect and share ideas with manufacturing and packaging stakeholders from across Australia.

Since the 1960s, FoodTech Qld has been Australia’s leading triennial food and beverage manufacturing trade show.  This year’s in-person event, tagged ‘Pushing Boundaries, Feeding Innovation’, is focused on innovations in equipment and technology, processing and packaging that are set to transform food and beverage manufacturing in Australia.

It combines FoodTech Qld’s traditional trade expo and networking events with a two-day conference stream led by foodpro affiliate the Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology (AIFST) with input from the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP).
