Forests tag aids re­gion

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

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 south­ern­forests­
