Minister for Trade and Industry Niall Blair said he was proud of the range of “outstanding products” from all across the state.
“There aren’t many places in the world that can lay claim to having foods ranging from bush tucker cheese to seaweed pasta,” Mr Blair said.
Exhibitors were chosen for their quality and growth potential as well as their ability to showcase the variety of NSW produce and interesting products.
Among the other producers included artisan cheese, organic chocolate, goose-based products, smoked meats, protein balls, tea and dairy products.
NSW has over 50,000 agricultural, aquaculture, fishing and food and beverage processing companies feeding into a growing export industry worth more than $7 billion a year.
Fine Food Australia helped expand this lucrative industry globally, by showcasing our latest innovative food products to buyers from over 45 countries.
