foodpro returns to Melbourne in 2023, and with so much new to explore, there has never been a better time to get involved.
Running for over 50 years, foodpro is southern hemisphere’s biggest and longest running trade event dedicated to all sectors of food and beverage manufacturing and processing. foodpro event organisers, Diversified Communications Australia, understand the importance of events like this to support business and economic growth. Face-to-face interaction is the foundation of building strong relationships, and in-person events create the necessary push for business to happen and have significant ROI implications.
Although changing consumer demand have created pressure on the manufacturing industry in the past few years, this sector remains one of the strongest and biggest manufacturing sectors in Australia – and foodpro is looking forward to continuing to support this thriving and resilient industry.

foodpro continues to expand and offer new and exciting opportunities for the industry to look forward in its upcoming events. In 2023, visitors and exhibitors alike will be able to experience a full product development cycle right on the show floor with the New Product Development Zone in collaboration with foodpro’s newest event offering thinkfood LIVE.

Plus, working closely with a food advisor, exhibitors will be able to host cooking at their stands to really elevate the exhibition and visitor experience.
