Nov 17, 2022 foodpro News

A unique new industry event for 2023 is set to ignite the food and beverage space with a wealth of exciting ideas and contacts.

thinkfood LIVE will connect food professionals with the best suppliers to kickstart their new product development (NPD) journey or breathe new life into existing products. The event will take place next year over two huge days on 25-26 October 2023 at Carriageworks – a modern urban cultural precinct located at the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops in Redfern, Sydney.

“thinkfood LIVE is a brand-new event concept focusing on ingredients, technology, and creative services,” said Commercial Director, Siobhan Rocks. “This event concept is unique to Australia so it’s an exciting and innovative opportunity for all to connect. We have developed this forum due to overwhelming demand from businesses eager to connect with the right channels to take their new product development to the next level.  

“There will be exhibiting experts in all key areas covering everything from consumer insights and packaging, to design agencies and test kitchens. There will be a key focus on ingredients and flavour houses, who can help emerging and established businesses curate the perfect launch pad for their new product or brand. 

“Along with supplier networking we are working with leading associations AIFST and AIP to develop a quality content program that will support NPD trends. We can’t wait to bring manufacturers and suppliers together to collaborate on the next generation consumer products.” 

To kick off the event, an exclusive networking launch party will be held on Wednesday, 30 November 2022 at Carriageworks from 5pm to 6.30pm for suppliers, food and beverage manufacturers, key industry partners and media.  

Attendees will get an opportunity to speak directly to the thinkfood LIVE team and get the latest updates on the inaugural live conference and exhibition. 

Keynote speaker at the launch party will be Becky Mead, Managing Director of PLAY – experts in consumer-led innovation. Ms Mead will be presenting the topic: How to predict FMCG trends without going around the bend. PLAY has helped thousands of FMCG manufacturers create successful products by unearthing insights and innovation across the NPD process.
