Suppliers & Producers

A key objective of the Festival is to raise the profile of food & beverage producers, manufacturers and suppliers from the Wellington region.

Our food and beverage sector consistently punches above its weight with businesses winning national awards year after year for innovation and quality.

The greater Wellington region has approximately 150 companies in the business of manufacturing food and beverage products. There's a wide range of products, from staple New Zealand exports such as meat through to further processed, high-end products like fine wines, craft beers, chocolate, confectionery, olive oil, honey, and coffee to name a few.

Supplier Showcase 

The Supplier Showcase is the first event on the festival calendar and is a great opportunity for Wellington producers and suppliers to showcase their wares to the hospitality trade and discuss options for their Visa Wellington On a Plate and year-round menu ideas. Registrations are open to any Wellington region-based producers or suppliers including wineries and breweries.  The price per table ion 2017 was $125+GST.
