As doors opened for Day 4 of foodpro 2023, the Food & Drink Business media hub went live for a final day of live podcasting. 

Editor Kim Berry started the day talking to Brittaniee-Jane Lawler from Gelita about its stand and products on display. It was a real treat for the Food & Drink Business team to put names to faces after covering Gelita in our foodpro preview, which you can read here. 

Publisher Lindy Hughson was then joined by David Power from Labelmakers Group to discuss digital connectivity on packaging.

The last guest of the day was Leon McIndoe, director of Saraya, who talked to Kim Berry about the business and the different divisions in the company, particularly Lakanto, its sugar-free products company. Earlier in the week, Kim Berry also spoke to Mark Davies from Saraya about infection control products. 

Before the team had to pack-up and return to Sydney, Kim Berry and journalist Pippa Haupt wrapped up foodpro 2023 with a final broadcast.
