Food is an essential part of the tourism offer in Wales

Food and drink are an essential part of tourism in Wales. Together with tourism and hospitality, they deliver quality Welsh produce as part of the visitor’s experience. 

We have some of the world’s best food and drink producers and world class chefs in Wales.  With interesting places to eat, all are important to our visitors.   

Food Tourism in Wales promotes Welsh food and drink which is: 

  • of high quality 
  • distinctive and local 
  • a sustainable food experience

The Food Tourism Action Plan

We are working with stakeholders from the tourism, hospitality and food and drink industries.  We have developed the Food Tourism Action Plan for Wales 2015 – 2020 to:

  • raise Wales’s profile as a high quality food tourism destination
  • improve Visitor access to and awareness of Welsh food and drink
  • encourage Welsh hospitality businesses to source more local food and drink
  • increase the prevalence of Welsh food and drink on menus and in retail offering and
  • identify skills gaps in knowledge, sourcing and preparation of local food and drink.

Food tourism toolkits

To help businesses improve their food offer and visitor experience we have developed a variety of simple to use toolkits (external link).
