FOOD HUI 2020.
Monday 19th October - Day 1 by Restaurant Association.
Tuesday 20th October - Day 2 by Eat New Zealand.
Where: Te Papa, Wellington.
Eat New Zealand began life as a day of talks about our food and the things that influence it. For that reason our Food Hui remains a hugely important date in our yearly calendar. This is our sixth consecutive annual symposium and it will be held in Wellington on Monday 19th & Tuesday 20th October, as a part of VISA Wellington on a Plate and co-presented with the Restaurant Association of New Zealand.
It is undoubtedly the most important food conversation in New Zealand, as it covers all aspects of our food; from agriculture to hospitality and tourism.
We’re a small country with a big voice, and when we speak, more often than not, the world listens. So, we’re gathering up some of the best local and international speakers who bring with them tools, stories, and ideas to educate and inspire! If we stand together we have the power to create enormous change for good. Come and be part of the event that moves beyond the walls of establishments and into the community and nation.
Eat New Zealand are partnering with the Restaurant Association of New Zealand to bring you a plethora of speakers and panellists as they take the stage to share knowledge and insights. Assembled for two days of talking, listening and thinking about New Zealand food, it’s going to be an amazing opportunity to learn from movers and shakers.
