International delegates and trade officials from 14 countries came to marvel at Griffith's industries as part of a "trade mission" around the Riverina.
The first stop on the tour was Flavourtech, which took the delegates on a Willy Wonka style tour around the factory.
The delegates savoured the familiar flavours and aromas from products that are shipped out worldwide, such as Douwe Egberts instant and Suntory canned coffee.
Flavourtech marketing director Leon Skaliotis said the delegates were surprised to see just how cutting-edge the technology was in Griffith.
"They were all fascinated to see such a high-tech company that's based here in rural Australia," Mr Skaliotis said.
"It was a real honour to be selected as one of the companies in the Riverina for the consul generals to visit."
Number two on their visit was Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod, which showed them around to hatcheries in Bilbul where their renowned fish are farmed.
Aquna's Murray Cod has drawn attention from some of the fanciest restaurateurs around the world and has been officially endorsed by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal.
Aquna managing director Mat Ryan said he was pleased to see more global attention being brought to the Riverina and its wealth of produce.
"It's good to see them getting out to the regions and learning a bit more about the products we have so they can represent us on the world stage," Mr Ryan said.
"We've been getting quite a bit of positive publicity lately, which is great."
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW, Industry and Trade John Barilaro said Griffith's industries were developing a glowing reputation from trade partners around the world.
"Flavourtech and Aquna are both regionally located and established businesses, whose leading edge manufacturing technologies and world-class practices are attracting interest and investment from big brands and businesses around the globe," Mr Barilaro said.
"Australian ingenuity is alive and kicking in regional NSW, thanks to world class research and development centres, a skilled workforce, a low-cost operating environment and connectivity to metro and international markets."
The delegates were from Argentina, Austria, Bangladesh, China, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland and the USA.
