“thinkfood LIVE is a brand-new event concept focusing on ingredients, technology, and creative services,” says 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 30 November 2022 at Carriageworks from 5pm to 6.30pm for suppliers, food and beverage manufacturers, key industry partners and media.
