This one-day, ‘everyone is welcome’ Festival includes a packed schedule of events specifically curated for packaged food & drink brand owners, including: 

  • expert talks and panel discussions;
  • networking and collaboration opportunities;
  • business-building workshops;
  • exhibits of the latest and greatest food and drink products (including yours!); plus…

… loads more to help foodpreneurs get their products on retail shelves, land in more consumer baskets and put more money in their pockets!

We invite you to get glued to a seat and take in all that our ‘mistake-saving’ speakers and industry experts have to share; or put yourself and your product in the spotlight at one of our promotion zones. 

Wherever you land, you’re sure to gain valuable insights and practical tips to help you successfully scale your packaged food & drink business.

But that’s not all! For the first time ever in Australia, Foodpreneurs Festival is hosting a thrilling event for brand owners to take their shot at coming face-to-face with retail buyers and getting their food or drink products listed on retail shelves. 

Buyers are coming from all over Australia and representing a range of major independent supermarket and department store brands for foodpreneurs to pitch to. It’s an opportunity not to be missed!

At Foodpreneurs Festival HQ, we know no one has spare time to be traversing the country, scrolling through Facebook pages or hoping trade shows will be their one-stop-shop for sales domination (because they won’t be!), so we’ve created a Festival that provides you with the perfect opportunity to work ‘on’ your business by doing a year’s worth of sales and promotion, in one day, with all the right people, under one roof! 

So come and join us and soak up the vibrant atmosphere and connect with fellow foodpreneurs. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to learn something new, meet new people, fill your little black book with industry contacts, or simply wanting to have a day out of the kitchen – Foodpreneurs Festival 2023 is for you. 

Doors open for registration from 8.30am. Buyer pitching and main stage events start at 10am. Happy Hour networking starts at 4pm. The Festival is accessible to everyone including those with limited mobility – all that’s needed is a valid ticket, some product to showcase and your best sales pitch to get the party started!

* Please note:  You must have a ticket to apply to pitch to the retail buyers and your application does not guarantee you a pitching time slot. 

Pitching application forms can be found here and a big list of your FAQs will help you out with anything you’re unsure about.
