Café Talk: Melbourne

Join COBAA for the SECOND “Café Talk” supplier networking industry breakfast

Surviving and Thriving in Today’s Cafe Market

Today’s café market is without a doubt, one of the toughest and most cut throat environments any supplier could wish to compete in. There are thousands of products and brand choices, rapid growth with in house roasting and national brands with multi million dollar budgets and an ever increasingly time-poor café consumer.  Despite this tough environment, there are many suppliers achieving not just incremental, but double-digit growth and healthy profits. How? Catch this special presentation, which will arm FoodService brands with enhanced knowledge, practical tips and inspiration to win in Cafe.

David Parnham, COBAA President and owner of the annual Pulse Café Report, has been an integral part of the Café FoodService shift. David will share information with suppliers about the café market’s current status and will look forward to the future.

Café owners appreciate that suppliers want to invest in the café industry and need a strong “Route To Market” improved supplier base to deal with them.  The trend and changes required will go further to providing a long term and worthwhile café market to invest in while still retaining the established points of difference noted in the four year café study where many successful suppliers are already meeting these needs.

Tickets to this event are available to all suppliers to the cafe industry.

Be sure to book your tickets NOW as the Sydney Cafe Talk sold out.
