6 October 2016 Popular Food Forum Returns

The annual Mid North Coast Food Forum returns to Bonville Golf Resort on Monday November 14 with a packed programme of speakers, panel discussions, a local food showcase and the famous Harvest Table Lunch.

“Featuring the region and Australia’s most successful food entrepreneurs, this year’s Food Forum will offer something for everyone with an interest in food and agriculture,” said Stephen Saunders, Council’s Section Leader Industry and Destination Development.

“It will also provide an opportunity to network with inspiring entrepreneurs, as well as some of our best local producers and hospitality gurus from the Mid North Coast food industry.”

The Forum is an ideal opportunity for growers, restaurateurs, food wholesalers, food retailers and business start-ups to learn, share experiences and build contacts.

The keynote speaker will be Tom Potter, the mastermind behind Eagle Boys Pizza.

Other guest speakers – including Lyndall Dykes of Cheese Making Workshop fame, Tom Lane from The Farm at Byron Bay, Kamaldeep Singh the CEO of blueberry giants Oz Group and Troy Blackman of Waterfall Farm - will cover a wide range of food industry topics including sustainability, marketing and business start-up initiatives.

At the panel and round table discussions, experts will share valuable insights into franchising, cooperatives, agri-tourism, product development, business planning and finance.

The range and quality of produce from the region will be the star attraction at the Local Produce Showcase, while the region’s best chefs will delight delegates with a three-course meal featuring some of that finest produce at the Harvest Table Lunch.
