Upcoming Event

Upcoming Event

Calling all local food and beverage businesses... we have two industry events coming up on Thursday 17th May that may be of value to you.

F&B Connect is your opportunity to engage with and learn from your peers and industry stakeholders:

• Gain valuable market insights for developing truly competitive products from Countdown Supermarkets 
• Learn how Nelson Regional Development Agency, The Cawthron Instutute and FoodSouth can help support aspiring and growing foodies, as well as hear from a local business about their journey to success 
• Discover how the NZ Food Awards Program can assist you in taking the next step in your journey

This event will take place on Thursday 17th May from 3.30pm - 6pm at Cawthron Institute, Nelson.

On the same day, but separate to this event, FoodSouth will be holding a free ‘pop in clinic’ between 11 – 2pm at the NRDA. Foodsouth have amazing capabilities around processing and scaling up production, so it will be really beneficial for businesses looking to introduce and test new product developments before undertaking full commercial runs, or wanting to learn how to increase their existing production outputs substantially.
