Little Creek Cheese, in Wyong, has been selected by the state government to attend the largest food industry trade event in the southern hemisphere, Fine Food Australia, in Melbourne, in September, to promote NSW produce to the world.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, said Little Creek Cheese was one of only 12 food and beverage companies chosen from NSW.
“Selection for the NSW government stand is a major feather in the cap for this outstanding local producer and for our regional food and beverage industry,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Little Creek Cheese’s haloumi cheese previously won gold three years in a row at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and its garlic and dill marinated goat feta won gold and reserve champion at the Royal Hobart Show.
“Fine Food Australia attracts 1000-plus exhibitors from over 60 countries as well as more than 20,000 visitors, so this will be a unique chance to promote our produce to potential domestic and international markets.”
Minster for Trade and Industry, Niall Blair, said the government’s Flavours of NSW stand will feature a stunning showcase of the best food companies from across the state.
“NSW has over 50,000 agricultural, aquaculture, fishing and food and beverage processing companies that contribute to a food and agriculture export industry worth more than $7 billion a year,” Mr Blair said.
“We’ve focused on getting a diverse and innovative selection of companies on our stand that can showcase both the quality and uniqueness of our industry, so congratulations to Little Creek Cheese on being among the selected few.”
