Foodstuffs Expo 2018

The Foodstuffs Expo is New Zealand’s largest retail food show held every two years. It’s home to hundreds of suppliers showcasing everything from the latest supermarket equipment through to delicious deli delicacies, innovative packaging and sustainable products. As New Zealand’s largest supermarket company, Foodstuffs is committed to doing its level best to make sure they are ahead of the trends; delivering what customers need and want.

This year there were so many new products to show the Foodstuffs team, ahead of them hitting the shelves. The event had a record number of attendees for the #foodstuffsexpo2018 with over 5,000 across the two days, the largest number of registrations to date (made up of supermarket owners, grocery managers, category department staff, exhibitors and suppliers).

The suppliers go to great lengths to capture everyone’s attention and there’s a right royal battle to win an award in each key category.

Congratulations especially to MG Marketing who won the Overall Best Foodstuffs Expo 2018 Display and NZ Bakels who won the Members’ Choice award, but the whole team was impressed by the exceptionally high standard this year and is looking forward to seeing some fantastic new products instore soon.
