From Albany to Carnarvon, WA’s Great Graze will see food and produce events up and down the State from April 10 to May 1.
In Manjimup and Pemberton, Wilyabrup and Yallingup, Chittering and Swan Valley, local produce will be served fresh and with a twist.
Southern Forests Food Council chairman Kieran Kinsella says the idea for WA’s Great Graze was sparked by the cancellation of many of the State’s events due to COVID-19. “We needed an opportunity to unite and celebrate our State’s food and beverage sector,” she says. “So, with a bit of creative thinking and collaboration across industry, the inaugural WA’s Great Graze was developed.”
WA’s Great Graze is a collaboration between Genuinely Southern Forests and key partner Buy West Eat Best, along with Sponsors, Pomewest, WA Potatoes, Carnarvon Visitor Centre, Gascoyne Food Council, Farmer Jacks and City of Swan.
Melissa Worthington, program manager of Buy West Eat Best, adds: “Agriculture, tourism and food service industries have faced many challenges since the pandemic began, so innovative events that allow for flexibility and participation from across the state are a great way to show our appreciation and continue to support local businesses.”
