Fáilte Ireland have selected 14 emerging food champions who will travel on a food tourism benchmarking trip to Prince Edward County in Canada where they will experience a bespoke itinerary developed by renowned food tourism destination expert Rebecca LeHeup (@OntarioCulinary), Executive Director, Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance (OCTA), who will be their guide throughout the trip.
These 14 food champions which are dispersed throughout the country from Dublin, Cork, Sligo, Waterford, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Meath and Clare, were picked from 160 nominations for their resounding passion and belief in Irish food, together with a commitment and drive to actively influence and shape the future of Irish cuisine and food tourism in their region.

An admirable selection of the finest Food Champions operating in Ireland today. I think they will be a credit to the progression of Irish Food on the National and the International Culinary Stage.
Congratulations to you all!
