“…thank you again, for helping to get us to pitch Brain and Brawn to David Jones, Panetta and The Natural Grocery Company. We believe all 3 pitches went very well, and are confident of good outcomes… We had an excellent day and got a lot of value from the talks which were all fantastic.”

~ Yan and Alan from Brain and Brawn

“I had three pitches, they’ve been excellent, it’s been great to meet DJ’s, Flannerys, The Natural Grocery Company and Panetta…and I’ve had really good indications from two (of the buyers)”

~ Mark from Avalon Health Club

“I just thought you should know that I have had a positive response from David Jones…and Panetta have also reached out as they saw the products on Stickybeak Station…it has been a great experience and very tangible.”

~ Fatema from The Chai Room

“WOW! THANK YOU… (the Festival) certainly exceeded my expectations and opened some doors. Making connections to stores, normally out of reach to smaller, lesser known emerging Brands, through this event, was an amazing opportunity..”

~ Georgina from Giddy Citizen

“Thank you for the amazing opportunity you have given Morella Grove and other producers to pitch our products to these gourmet retailers. You have put together such an incredible opportunity for us producers to talk directly with buyers in the industry that normally would require a lot of time and leg work for us.”

~ Natasha Dal Bon from Morella Grove

“I thought it would just be a buyers expo when I bought my ticket but it turned into so much more! Amazing!”

~ Janessa Rutter from Bask&Co

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for organising this festival. We believe it will be a fantastic opportunity for us to learn and grow!”

~ Melanie Sawla & Bhuvan Dua from Fox Pops

“Thanks for putting on this event – I found it very useful last year before going to market. Definitely the best source of information around for small brands!”

~ Alexandra from Nimbus
