It has been two long years since our last Food & Drink Business L!VE and we are more than making up for lost time with a stellar line-up of food and beverage industry leading lights speaking to our 2022 theme, Business NOT as Usual.

Book your tickets here

We have four keynote speakers to get our synapses firing right out of the gate.

Georgie Aley, KPMG director and national sector lead for Consumer Packaged Goods and Agribusiness

Kristy Carr, Bubs Australia founder and CEO 

Julia Seddon, CEO of environmental and sustainability services firm Cress Consulting

Jim Fader, CEO of precision fermentation company Eden Brew

I told you the line up was stellar.

We also have a panel discussion with companies that embody business not as usual.

Shawn Andrews, founder of Dhuwa Coffee, Australia’s first Indigenous owned, operated, and controlled coffee company and Griffiths Bros Coffee Roasters co-owner Chris Togias will talk first-hand about manufacturing meaningful change – and good coffee.

They will be joined by Kate Weiss, founder of Table of Plenty, which one year ago became part of Openway Food Co., a company intent on growing health and wellness brands using a new business model.

And Mark Ostryn, senior partner at Groves & Partners, a specialist in FMCG business sales and acquisitions will share the changes in business he is seeing in that market.   

Mark it in your diaries and book your tickets now: Thursday, 10 November, at 8am, at the State Library Victoria in Melbourne. 

We can’t wait to see you all and I'll do my best not to bust out some show tunes. 

And a shout-out to our sponsors this year:

Platinum: Hydroflux

Gold: is it you?

Silver: Matthews | PILZ | Ozkor
