What if the Silicon Valley of food manufacturing was in Australia?

The recipe for sustainable growth?

Talent, Opportunity and Innovation.

When the three line up, something special happens. Unfortunately, they are all in short supply in Australia at the moment, hence building the conditions for them to collide and create new possibilities is essential to underpin healthy growth prospects.

Manufactured foodNicolas Georges, Director of Research and Development – Asia Pacific at Mondelez Australia Foods, is speaking at the Asia Pacific Food & Fibre Summit in Melbourne this month. Nicolas will be discussing how the Australian food industry’s limited access to these ingredients has rarefied rapidly as the impacts of currency, commodities and development in other countries have accelerated.

Rather than fighting skilfully over the left-overs, all stakeholders, government, industry, research institutes, universities and investors need to openly collaborate with urgency to recreate the conditions of a big bang, the primordial soup out of which a new life will spring for Australia’s most important manufacturing industry.

In partnership with the Victorian Government, Kraft Foods has decided to make a first step in that direction, hoping to generate a movement across the nation that will help us imagine and create a brighter future. This speech would hope to contaminate you!

The dates for the event are 30th – 31st October and includes a 2-day conference at the Hilton on the Park, along with the gala dinner on the evening of the 30th at The Queen’s Hall, Victorian Parliament. Full details available on the website. We hope to see you there!
