why is this project important?

FYP delivers benefits to local and rural communities across NSW, demonstrating tangible impact for Australian communities.

ICC Sydney is Asia Pacific’s premiere integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment venue acting as the gateway to Sydney for local, interstate and international visitors.

Feeding Your Performance (FYP) is a cornerstone piece of ICC Sydney’s triple bottom line sustainability strategy, which began as a concept underpinning ICC Sydney’s menu’s and culinary approach, but has evolved into a philosophy which permeates ICC Sydney’s sustainability strategy.

Prior to opening in 2016 ICC Sydney committed to favoring local produce across its nutritionally balanced menu, featuring seasonal and ethically sourced NSW produce designed to energise the physical and mental performance of delegates. At the heart of the approach is the personal engagement and relationships with local farmers, which enable ICC Sydney to take a flexible approach to purchasing, resulting in increased cash flow and stability for small producers and widespread social and environmental outcomes.
