ICC Sydney is feeding your performance

02 Mar 2016

New Food Philosophy Revealed

Sydneysiders, local travellers and global visitors alike are set to enjoy delectable world class dishes designed to fuel both body and mind across events and key outlets at International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), the new premier convention, exhibition an​d entertainment precinct in Darling Harbour.

Acknowledging that the nutritional value of food is just as important as its provenance, ICC Sydney will embrace an industry-first Feeding Your Performance philosophy to deliver ‘smart’ menus comprising fresh, seasonal and ethically sourced ingredients, expertly combined to drive physical and mental performance.

Chief Executive Officer of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy, said the innovative approach to food and beverage will be a  driver for event, visitor and business success, helping provide the best possible environment for collaboration and engagement.

“Our world class culinary team is committed to feeding innovation, enhancing the delegate experience at conventions, driving energy levels for businesses on the trade show floor and pepping up table conversations at gala dinners ahead of our opening this December,” said Donaghy.

ICC Sydney Executive Chef, Tony Panetta, said that by working in partnership with nutritionists, his team has been able to unlock the science behind ingredients to create dishes which pack a punch and tick the boxes of both style and substance.

“What we eat has always played a vital role in supporting our bodies. Meals that are high in protein and low in saturated fats are good for the overall health of delegates and visitors and help them maintain focus. We’re also increasing the ratio of plant based proteins in dishes to boost digestion and concentration,” he said.
