From September 15 – 18 the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be hosting the Fine Food Australia expo, set to celebrate, in its 30th year, the very best in food and food-related products.
This year the expo will be including food and food-product innovations and trends that are targeted at aged care, given the overwhelming number of baby boomers now approaching retirement age.
Hosted by The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology, the event will feature a program aimed at people in the food industry looking to innovate to meet the needs of specific population groups, such as aged care. Industry experts have been appointed to speak on a range of issues from delivering personalised nutrition to taking care of elderly consumers and their needs at home and in care facilities.
Speakers include Coles Supermarkets’ Andrea Currie, the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s Geoffrey Anniston, Monash University’s Jane Muir, and more.
Additionally, there will be a series of seminars relevant to aged care that focus on individual diets, allergens, food presentation, the dining experience and managing a tight budget. These will be spread out over two days, and seats are limited.
It’s the biggest food trade show in the country, with both buyers and sellers within the retail, food service and hospitality sectors coming out to play, and for those reasons alone, it’s worth attending.
