It has never been easier for visitors and locals to explore and discover new food, beverage and agri-business operators on the North Coast with the launch of the North Coast Flavour Trails.
The North Coast Flavour Trails is a dynamic digital platform that gives consumers the ability to explore the vast array of options available across the North Coast, have their trip mapped out for them, then hit the road and discover and enjoy a host of new and exciting experiences.
In a world that has become obsessed with discovering authentic, new or varied producers and operators in this space, the North Coast Flavour Trails will be an invaluable tool for consumers to explore further, design themed trails and to uncover the provenance and stories behind the amazing food, beverage and agri-business available across the North Coast.
In addition to improving the visitor experience, the North Coast Flavour Trails will also greatly assist in enhancing the North Coasts reputation as a food and beverage destination. Through collating a critical mass of quality operators onto one easy to use platform, the North Coast Flavour Trails provides a consumer-centric tool that gives more reason to book and visit the North Coast.
For operators, the story gets even better as the North Coast Flavours Trail is free to access and non-commissionable. There are no joining fees and as the platform is delivered through a partnership between Destination North Coast and Destination NSW no commissions are charged for bookings.
The no-cost model and consumer reach of the North Coast Flavour Trails will assist all operators but will be particularly beneficial for new or smaller operators. The platform will enable these operators to reach new customers and markets that may have otherwise been out of their reach.
Stuart Ayres, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, and Minister for Industry and Trade said: “I encourage North Coast operators to get involved with this free program and connect with new customers. The North Coast is home to both well-trodden culinary destinations and new and upcoming experiences, and this easy-to-use platform gives customers even more inspiration and tools to eat and drink their way around the region.”
Michael Thurston, General Manager of Destination North Coast states, “The North Coast Flavour Trails is a consumer-centric platform designed to help visitors form a deeper emotional response to the region through a connection to the provenance of the food, beverage and agri-business experiences on offer whilst providing operators a great vehicle to promote their offerings at no cost.”
