The Victorian Government will host a Victoria Pavilion at the Gulfood, Foodex, Food and Hotel Asia (FHA) and SIAL trade shows, and will provide support to eligible Victorian organisations exhibiting.

Space is limited and companies are requested to register interest as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

Participants on all missions will have the opportunity to exhibit products at the trade show and meet with buyers and visitors to the show.

Victorian Government Trade and Investment (VGTI) offices in each region will invite targeted buyers who have indicated a specific interest in Australian products. Mission participants will also be invited to participate in networking events with key decision makers from the relevant food and beverage industries.
