What is World Food Travel Day? It's an entire day dedicated to drawing awareness to the importance of local culinary cultures around the world. It takes place on April 18, every year, on the same day everywhere in the world.

According to the experts surveyed in our 2019 State of the Food Travel Industry Report, culinary culture and authenticity are fundamental and even critical components of success in food and beverage tourism. Travel is the best education and traveling for a taste of place gives us a sense of place.  We recognized the need for an annual campaign to spotlight the preservation and promotion of culinary cultures around the world.

That's #WorldFoodTravelDay on April 18. Help us and our industry to spread awareness about food tourism, culinary authenticity and the importance of our food cultures, not just in your area, but around the world as well!
