Doing Lunch! in Melbourne

Following a hugely successful Sydney show, Lunch! lands in Melbourne on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 August at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. 

Lunch! is a trade show, attracting a record number of buyers from the retail, foodservice and hospitality industries including: restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs, hotels, delis and supermarkets, caterers and government.  It is also a unique opportunity for smaller, boutique producers to have a taste of a mainstream trade show in the Lyndey Milan Producers’ Showcase precinct within the show. 

In Melbourne, my area will feature:

Apthorpe Farm: delicious array of relishes from a fruit and vegetable farm in Hampton, Queensland.
Bondi Chai: sold around the world, this mix-with-milk premium blend is creamy and smooth and is low fat, low caffeine, gluten-free and contains no trans-fats or other artificial nasties.
Dovedale Bread: gluten free, wheat-free and dairy-free range of rice, fruit, rye, corn and grain breads from Wodonga, Victoria.
Hank's Jam: premium jam, chutney and condiments from this 20 year industry veteran, ‘just like Grandma used to make’.
Wymah Organic Olives: range of certified organic olive products includes table olives, tapenades, extra virgin olive oil and infused oils.

Come along, visit my producers and check in on these other interesting attractions:
  • Working Lunch! Theatre – panels featuring industry hardhitters discussing food trends, food merchandising and the business of food franchising.
  • Lunch! Table – with competitions such as Smoothie and Juice and Australian Sandwichship titles and a number of different senimars on one of my favourite liquids, coffee.
  • Menu Inspiration Academy – practical sessions with pricing and projected profit.
I look forward to seeing you at Lunch! in Melbourne.
