About Foodhui 2019:

A 2-day gathering presented by the Restaurant Association of New Zealand and Eat New Zealand to consider some of the most important questions, challenges and opportunities in New Zealand food and hospitality at the moment.

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.

The Restaurant Association of New Zealand has partnered with Eat New Zealand to bring you a plethora of speakers and panellists to take the stage to share knowledge and insights. Assembled for two days of talking, listening and thinking about New Zealand food, it’s an amazing opportunity to learn from movers and shakers.

The event is for all Restaurant Association members & Eat New Zealand supporters, as well as food lovers nationally. Hundreds of small business owners/operators, chefs, restaurateurs, suppliers and media are expected to attend.
