The Miramichi River Tourism Association has engaged the Culinary Tourism Alliance to support the development of a Food Tourism Development Plan for the region, due for completion in November 2018.
As part of the process we want to hear from business owners and operators in the community because your unique insights and perspectives will help us to develop a plan that meets the needs of industry stakeholders.
To assist with this, we are hosting an industry-based consultation and food tourism workshop, where you will be able to share your perspective and ideas on the strategy development, enjoy lunch, network and learn what food tourism can do for your community.
