“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 Evans said.

Pacdon Park of Moama British style smallgoods including pork pies, black pudding, haggis, bacon, and gammon using the finest free range local ingredients. It was founded by two Lancashire lads who fell in love with Australia during a backpacking trip but still longed for a decent pork pie.

“Fine Food Australia attracts 1,000 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.

“As well as helping to grow sales, attendance at Fine Food Australia enables producers to network with industry leaders on the latest trends and consumer preferences to stay ahead of the game,” Mr Evans said.

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 Pacdon Foods on being among the selected few.”
