Taste of Queensland 2024

Taste of Queensland is Trade and Investment Queensland’s signature food and agriculture trade initiative. A week-long program that connects international buyers, importers and distributors with Queensland's premium food, beverage, and agribusiness exporters 

It is a highly successful inbound and outbound trade mission program. 

At the heart of this program is the biennial Taste of Queensland Showcase where international buyers visit Queensland to engage with a diverse range of growers, producers and suppliers that export to markets around the world. 

Buyers and exporters come together to network, build relationships, participate in business matching meetings and sample delicious products.

Participants also visit exporters’ site operations – enjoying exclusive behind-the-scenes tours and gaining insights into their production methods and techniques. 

Taste of Queensland connects Queensland with the world and the world to Queensland.

The next Taste of Queensland will be held in August 2024 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
