Pro­mot­ing lo­cal prod­ucts at tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tre

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

THE Whit­sun­day Re­gion In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre now fea­tures ‘Made in the Whit­sun­days’ - an ex­hibit of lo­cal prod­ucts avail­able to pur­chase.

The ex­hibit is part of Whit­sun­day Mar­ket­ing and Devel­op­ment Lim­ited (WMDL) ini­tia­tive to show­case what the re­gion has to of­fer.

It cur­rently fea­tures prod­ucts from Whit­sun­day Myr­tle, Whit­sun­day Or­ganic Prod­ucts and Whit­sun­day Gold Cof­fee but is open to lo­cal peo­ple want­ing to share or sell their arts and craft or prod­ucts.

Whit­sun­day Or­ganic Prod­ucts have a range of muesli avail­able, some with wolf­berry and Goji and a nut mix.

Whit­sun­day Or­ganic Prod­ucts direc­tor Janet Keppke is ex­cited to share her prod­ucts with lo­cals and vis­i­tors at the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre.

“I think we need to tell peo­ple [of the] qual­ity of prod­ucts we can pro­duce here.”

“Some of the prod­uct here is unique to area and unique to Aus­tralia,” she said.

Whit­sun­day Myr­tle is pas­sion­ate about the amaz­ing prop­er­ties that the Myr- tle plant of­fers and has a range of body, spa and face bars to buy. Whit­sun­day Myr­tle owner and direc­tor Grace Evans said the WMDL ini­tia­tive will bring lo­cals back to the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre.

Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and Devel­op­ment Lim­ited Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Da­nial Rochford said it’s a new way to show off the prod­ucts the re­gion was pro­duc­ing.

“Here in the Whit­sun­days we are very proud of our nat­u­ral land­scapes and unique life­style but we also need to be proud of our lo­cal com­mu­nity and the beau­ti­ful art, crafts and prod­ucts cre­ated right here in the Whit­sun­days,” he said.

To find out more about the op­por­tu­ni­ties at the Whit­sun­day Re­gion In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre con­tact WMDL on 4948 5913.

Tori Fro­bish from Whit­sun­day Mar­ket­ing and Devel­op­ment Lim­ited, Grace Evans from Whit­sun­day Myr­tle and Janet Keppke look for­ward to sell­ing lo­cal prod­ucts at the Whit­sun­day Re­gion In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.
