“Food, it brings us together.” And although we cannot be together right now, we all know the importance and value of sharing a meal. The World Food Travel Association stands firm with our culinary tourism industry and our stakeholders worldwide, including culinary destinations, culinary tour operators, wineries, breweries, restaurants, cafes, lodging, retail shops, and tourist guides, just to name a few, as well as the world’s beloved food loving travelers. We’re with you!
Hard-working small business owners and passionate individuals are the very foundation of our culinary tourism industry. You are what make the visitor experiences so unique and special. And as we watch the news and hear first-hand from our industry friends everywhere in the world, it pains us to see how much we are all hurting right now. We pledge to you that we will do everything in our power to help keep our community united, give support wherever we can, and provide resources, ideas, and leadership to help you cope with this devastating crisis.
Our thoughts and condolences are with everyone, and especially those who have to make very difficult and heartbreaking decisions right now. We are filled with uncertainty about what our future will bring. Yet one thing is for certain, we will persevere!
