Food Land Culture presents

Western Australia’s first Food And Drink Symposium (FADS) on Sunday 28 May 2017.


FADS will bring farmers, producers, chefs, educators and consumers together.

FADS will bring farmers, producers, chefs, educators and consumers together for a unique, community creating and sustainable food and drink event; with a day long program of talks, panel discussions and workshops.

Through FADS, we aim to start a conversation on the issues that we face as a State, and to discuss them as a community. We hope this will result in improving our food and drink landscape, and strengthening and making the industry we work and consume in more vital.
