Venue & Location
ADELAIDE CONVENTION CENTRE
feel good, whole good, made fresh
"The event includes food with thought. In the menu, nature is the hero. It has been developed in collaboration with the restaurants Executive Chef, Gavin Robertson, and the leading nutritional experts at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. All ingredients used have been prepared in-house, by their dedicated chefs to make creative, restaurant-quality dishes that are vibrant in colour, bursting with flavour, as well as responsibly farmed, sustainably produced and ethically sourced. This menu’s focus on minimal intervention foods and conscious reduction of salts, sugars and preservations is set to transform the convention centre dining experience. To deliver on this commitment, salts have been reduced and replaced with rubs and spices, sugar-laden drinks swapped for house-made ice teas and fruit-infused waters, as well as engagement with local farmers and artisan producers. In designing Honest Goodness their team has worked to reduce the use of processed elements, replacing them with whole, fresh ingredients. Processed and manufactured fats and related substitutes have been replaced with natural animals and plant-based fats to create more balanced dishes. Ingredients with traditionally high sugar volume have been replaced with house-made chutneys, sauces and dressings with lower sugar levels, as well as utilising herbs and spices to reduce overall salt content. Honest Goodness also uses natural rubs and house-made marinades to enhance flavour, alongside their use of in-house smoked and roasted meats. Honest Goodness is about celebrating food that not only tastes good, but is good in every sense.”
fighting food waste
“Adelaide Convention Centre is committed to sustainable practises and being environmentally responsible in every aspect of their business. Internationally recognised as a leader in sustainability, they have actively participated in the global EarthCheck program since 2007 and are on track to become the first convention centre in Australia to receive Platinum certification. Food rescue and recycling is one of their major focuses, and in doing so their efforts have not only helped feed the homeless, but also divert food waste from landfill, helping to save greenhouse gas emissions and water usage. To date they have re-distributed more than 150,000 unused meals to OzHarvest and FoodBank. The centre have also built their very own worm farms, which serve perfectly for composting gardens surrounding the venue. The Adelaide Convention Centre is committed to sourcing produce from local, sustainable environments, as well as being responsibly farmed and ethically sourced.”
