Sustainable Food Tourism
Learn how to “get off the eaten path” with travel & food writer, Emily De Sousa.
Food tourism has been an increasing travel trend for years. Food travel allows travellers to connect with the land, local culture, and food producers. It is an opportunity for sharing stories, forming relationships and building communities.
Sustainable food tourism offers locals and visitors an authentic taste of place while contributing to a sustainable economy and local economic development.
There are many ways that travellers can enjoy food tourism in a sustainable way that respects natural resources, supports the local economy, and promotes deeper connections to the food we eat. In this presentation, attendees will learn the principles of sustainable food tourism and how to use food to cultivate a more meaningful experience for travellers.
