About Food Melbourne’s North

Food Melbourne’s North – the new Melbourne’s North Food Group – is an active and dynamic industry cluster that represents food, beverage and fibre businesses across Melbourne’s North, including the supply chain. Our purpose is to help our businesses meet the challenges of local and global marketplaces.

We deliver this through providing access to:

  • local, national and international trade shows
  • training
  • individual business reviews
  • export advice
  • up-to-date information
  • major events
  • group buying and more.

Advocacy is key to our role and we also provide a single contact point between our partners and all levels of government, experts and education to maximise opportunities.

Central to everything we do is consultation. Our goal is always to ensure the best outcome for our partners and the regional industry sector we serve.

The Victorian Government approved funding for Food Melbourne’s North on 15 February 2018, with equal funding from project partners.
