A new food trail aimed at attracting food tourists to Flintshire has been officially launched
The Clywdian Range Food Trail is a gourmet guide to the region, including the butchers, bakers, delis, farm shops, cheesemakers and producers of the area.
It was produced by rural regeneration agency Cadwyn Clwyd.
Alun Davies, Welsh deputy minister for agriculture, food and fisheries, said, “Not only is Welsh food and drink a big part of our daily lives, it is also a vital part of Welsh culture. Food is so important to tourism and the Welsh economy, and the Welsh Government remains committed to strengthening the industry.
“For more visitors, sampling local food and drink is a highlight of their trip, and it is something they take home and tell others about,” he added.
Jane Clough, who owns Caffi Florence, one of the stops on the trail, commented, “This is a fantastic way for us to better promote the great local produce that is here.
“We always list our local producers because our raison d'etre as a café is to use locally-sourced food, and the more we can encourage our customers to buy from local producers the better.
“Now the food trail will help them go straight to those producers and retailers and buy from them,” she said.
