Grenada qualifies for culinary boost

Regional 15 Mar, 2021 Follow News

Grenada’s cuisine will get promoted soon

Grenada looks set to become the first Caribbean destination to become a certified Culinary Capital.

The World Food Travel Association, the world's leading authority on food and beverage tourism, announced the launch of Culinary Capitals last week.

Culinary Capitals is a new programme to help regenerate tourism to destinations that are not as well known for their quality food and beverage products and experiences.

The WFTA provides accredited destinations a range of benefits that include a full year's worth of strategy and marketing activities.

Sibby Dixon, of the Grenada Tourism Authority, said: “We are excited to be a part of Culinary Capitals. It is exactly what our destination needs to refine our culinary positioning. Historically we are known as the ‘Spice of the Caribbean’, being blessed with a plethora of spices, herbs and fruits, all organically grown. A new visitor profile has emerged due to the pandemic, and the programme perfectly aligns with Grenada's tourism product that offers a distinctive gastronomic experience that rejuvenates health, wellness in an outdoor oasis.”
