About our food trade missions

The Victorian Government plays an important role in supporting the food and fibre sector by facilitating several trade missions every year where participants visit key growth markets located across Asia, the Middle East and the Americas.

Participants are given the opportunity to exhibit their products at the trade shows, meet with buyers and visitors attending the show, and be invited to participate in networking events with key decision makers from the relevant food and beverage industries.

Our Victorian Government Trade and Investment (VGTI) offices in each region invite targeted buyers to the trade shows who have indicated a specific interest in Australian products.
