Food detective is launched

Have your say

MORE than 100 food and drink businesses participated in the South Downs Food & Drink Spring Event.

The event, held at Hepworths Brewery in Pulborough on Monday, saw the launch of the Local Food Detective, a free service to hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs based in the South Downs region to help them build their appeal to foodie tourists.

The project, being run by Natural Partnerships CIC, was awarded a grant from the government’s ‘Championing British Food Tourism’ scheme in November and is a simple technical tool attached to the online food directory, which features the best food shops, places to eat and events where people can eat, buy and enjoy local produce.

The launch event was supported by South Downs National Park Authority, NFU Pulborough and Coast to Capital LEP.
