Future of Food Conference: 23-24 September, 2021

hero

The Future of Food conference in Mandurah on the 23 and 24 September 2021, exists to inspire and initiate change within the Australian agri-food sector: to recognise future-forward businesses, champion innovative and successful agri-food professionals in their food journey, support the development of a progressive local food industry and empower consumers to make better-informed decisions about what they eat.

The conference runs on Thursday 23rd September and is followed by a sundowner that evening. On Friday 24th the opportunity is available to attend a full day Peel Food Zone tour which includes a workshop on Design Thinking or attend your choice of available workshops including 'Business Strategy and Planning', 'Maximising your value' and 'Brand Design and Strategy'.

COVID-19 Policy

We are very lucky to be living a fairly normal life in WA. Whilst lockdowns are ongoing throughout the country, WA's covid management has meant we have not had to face the same challenges as other states. Although we are confident there will be no local lockdowns affecting the conference, it is always nice to have some assurance that there is a plan just in case that happens.

Therefore, in the unlikely event that a lockdown does occur preventing the physical Future of Food Conference to go ahead, we will continue with the program and pivot to a fully virtual delivery with all bookings being converted to virtual tickets and a refund of the difference issued.
