Bomaderry company PhycoHealth has been chosen as one of only 12 NSW food and beverage companies to exhibit on the NSW Government stand at Fine Food Australia in September.

PhycoHealth’s Phycofood division was named one of the dozen successful producers by Minister for Trade and Industry Niall Blair following a search for the state’s tastiest food and beverages to fly the NSW flag at the Southern Hemisphere’s largest food industry trade expo.

Mr Blair said the “Flavours of NSW” stand at Fine Food Australia in Melbourne was the annual Olympics for food.

More than 1000 exhibitors from over 60 countries will compete for the attention of more than 20,000 food industry buyers and importers.

“The event gives NSW food and beverage producers a chance to market their brands to a who’s who of the industry and sell their products to the nation and the world,” Mr Blair said.

“We have assembled a diverse list of our best and most innovative producers to showcase what we’re made of here in NSW.

“Our products will include mouth-watering artisan cheeses, gourmet coffee, native bush food, award winning condiments, sugar free chocolate, seaweed infused creations, and niche beverages including craft ginger beer and Snowy Mountains schnapps”.
