Fine Food Exhibition (FFE) director Timothy Collett has resigned after 16 years with the show to make way for fresh new talent.
“I have enjoyed every minute of the experience but feel I have taken the current show as far as I can,” Collett said.
“It is now time for some new faces and ideas. It is also time for me to try something different. After a few months travelling with the family I will be taking on some new projects”.

down this month to make way for Minnie Constan
Fine Food began in 1984 in Melbourne and has grown into the largest food tradeshow in Australia. It runs annually and attracts over 1000 exhibitors and 25,000 trade visitors from around the world.
“Every show has been unique,” Collett said. “It has been challenging at times but always exciting and enjoyable because everyone shares the experience and wants a success. Every year the show has grown and it is now a truly world-class event.”
Collett will be replaced by Minnie Constan, who has worked in the exhibition industry for more than ten years, including the last two on FFE.
“I love the event and all the people involved,” Constan said of her new role. “I have been lucky to have a long handover from Timothy and met many of the key players.
“This is an important event for the industry and we will keep working hard to deliver positive results.”
This year Fine Food Australia will run from September 7 to 10 and fill all six halls at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.
