Meet our Major Partners

Bank of Melbourne 

Bank of Melbourne is a proud supporter of our food, wine, and hospitality industry. That’s why we’ve partnered with Melbourne Food & Wine Festival for 11 years consecutively. As Melbourne’s bank, we’re here to support the many talented people behind our state’s most vital industries. While 2021 continues to be unpredictable and challenging, the festival’s role in championing Victoria’s world-famous hospitality industry has become even more important. Sharing a meal of local, seasonal produce is a wonderful way we can all connect with family and friends in our community, while supporting our producers, winemakers, chefs, and restaurateurs to thrive.
