Somersby  cordial and coffee syrup maker, Yatees Traders has received NSW Government support to attend the Fine Food Australia trade exhibition in Melbourne in September and showcase their produce to buyers from all over the world.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner and Member for Gosford Chris Holstein congratulated Yates Traders on its inclusion in the exhibition, saying it was well deserved recognition of their potential.

“It is a golden opportunity for our world class producers of food in NSW to take their range to a wider audience,” Mr Stoner said.

“This is the 30th year of Fine Food Australia and it is Australia’s biggest food and wine show.

“One thousand exhibits will be on show and more than 30,000 people will attend over four days, including buyers and agents from major markets in Australia and overseas.

“Participants at last year’s Fine Food Australia reported that in the six months following the event, between them they created 16.5 new full time jobs, generated almost $350,000 in sales, and gained new interstate, export and distribution deals as a direct result of their involvement on the NSW Stand.”

Mr Holstein said selection to attend the “Flavours of NSW” stand was a great opportunity for Yates Traders.

“The NSW Government is committed to supporting regional businesses and it’s great to see a quality food maker right on our doorstep given this opportunity,” Mr Holstein said.

“NSW Trade and Investment has assisted this local company with exhibit space on the prominently placed ‘Flavours of NSW’ stand at the exhibition.

“Producers will also attend a marketing and promotions workshop to sharpen their commercial skills.”

Sixteen NSW companies will be represented on the “Flavours of NSW” stand at Fine Food Australia promoting the best produce in NSW, including olive oil, dairy, jams, nuts, fruit, oils, baked goods, coffee and meat.
