Forests tag aids region
The Southern Forests reputation as a premier foodproducing region in WA continues to grow.
The demand for Genuinely Southern Forests produce grows, in part, thanks to the Genuinely Southern Forests Retail Marketing Campaign, which launched three years ago.
The 2018 campaign launched earlier this month with a record 26 stores involved across Perth and surrounds.
The campaign aims to inspire consumers with a schedule of delicious in-store tastings and marketing activations.

The Southern Forests Food Council continues to connect members to new opportunities across the supply chain from the wholesale markets at Canning Vale, to chefs and restaurants, regional retail outlets, Eastern States markets and export opportunities as well.
“The opportunities created through our supply chain partshows ners will ultimately result in greater access and availability of Genuinely Southern Forests produce for consumers across the State,” Southern Forests Food Council chairwoman Monica Radomiljac said.
With food production ramping up over spring and into summer, the council is also co-ordinating custom food and farm tours to form a direct link between producers and consumers.
“Agri-tourism is an area that great potential for growth,” Mrs Radomiljac said.
“Our custom food and farm tours have been well received and visitors leave as proud and informed ambassadors for the region and our produce.”
The SFFC will be hosting a halfday food and farm tour to align with the Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival on Sunday, December 9. For more details or to buy tickets, visit southernforestsfood.com
