Pan Pacific Pork Expo
What is the Pan Pacific Pork Expo (PPPE)?
The 2018 PPPE will be held on 30 and 31 May 2018 at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach QLD.
PPPE combines a pork industry trade show and exhibition with information sessions supported by Australian Pork Limited (APL) and Pork CRC Limited. This gives opportunity to Australian producers to discuss, debate and where suitable, adopt new technologies and innovations. Since beginning in 1998, PPPE has continued to grow, attracting both domestic and international participants.
All the key decision makers involved in the Australian pork industry supply chain. These include:
- Pork producers
- Retail and food service industries
- Subsidiary service providers such as insurers and financial institutions
- Government officials.
- General product and service providers for rural industries
- Subsidiary service providers
- A broad spectrum of supply chain companies involved in the Australian pork industry.

Ron Collins Memorial Travel Award 2018
Ron Collins was a tireless worker for the Australian pork industry, and in 1997 he launched his publication, Australian Pork Newspaper, where he continued to support every aspect of the pork industry. Ron, with Managing Director of Jefo Australia, Wayne Bradshaw, was prominent in creating the PPPE concept.
In 2003, Ron Collins passed away after a battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Sue, and sons Ben and Tim. And so, as a sign of respect for the PPPE concept and in recognition of Ron’s commitment to the Australian pork industry, the Ron Collins Memorial – Pan Pacific Pork Expo Travel Award was established.
The Ron Collins Memorial – Pan Pacific Pork Expo Travel Award has been designed to assist a person, involved in any aspect of the Australian pork industry, to travel overseas and further investigate a topic which is of benefit to the industry. This award is not limited to any one area, however the purpose of the trip must be innovative and one which will benefit the Australian pork industry.
Applications must be received by COB Friday 27 April 2018.
