Friday, 22 June 2018
One of Monaro’s finest exports will be on display at the Southern Hemisphere’s largest food industry trade event, Member for Monaro John Barilaro announced today. Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery has been selected by the NSW Government to attend Fine Food Australia in Melbourne in September and promote NSW produce to the world.
Mr Barilaro said Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery has been chosen as one of only 12 food and beverage companies from across the state to be showcased on the NSW Government stand.
“Selection for the NSW Government stand is a major feather in the cap for Brad Spalding and his team, and it is a great reflection of our outstanding local food and beverage industry,” he said.
Wildbrumby founder Brad Spalding brought schnapps distilling from the European alps to the Snowy Mountains and now produces unique Australian schnapps, gin and vodka using local fruits and botanicals and mountain spring water.
Mr Barilaro said Fine Food Australia attracts 1,000 plus exhibitors from over 60 countries as well as more than 20,000 visitors and the event will be a unique chance for the 12 companies including Wildbrumby to promote NSW produce to potential domestic and international markets.
Mr Spalding said Wildbrumby is delighted to have been chosen to take part in the NSW Government exhibit at Fine Food Australia.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our local spirits made exclusively in the Snowy Mountains region, and boost awareness of the growing importance of the distilling industry to Australia,” Mr Spalding said.
“Fine Food Australia also offers unique training and mentoring opportunities for businesses seeking to export their products internationally, and we are looking forward to investigating this training and mentoring further as we prepare for the show.”
Minster for Trade and Industry, Niall Blair said the NSW 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 Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery on being among the selected few.”
