Food Travel Thought Leadership

By the World Food Travel Association

We founded the food tourism industry, and we've been behind every single innovation in our industry ever since.

We continue to lead our industry around the world with thought leadership in various ways, from insightful and thought-provoking articles and commentary, to cutting-edge products, and advancing our industry through student internships and giving back.

Articles & Commentary

We publish regularly about articles that affect various aspects of the food and beverage travel industry. Apart from opinion and editorial (Op/Ed), we also publish the annual State of the Food Tourism Industry report.

Student Internships

We offer a limited number of internships for students in our industry. Internships are usually conducted virtually so there is no need to travel to our location. This helps us work with students all around the globe. The types of internships we offer include project management, event marketing, product development, and research/ analysis. While the internships we offer are unpaid, you will typically work with our Executive Director and industry founder directly, invaluable experience that you cannot put a price tag on. We believe the best investment in society is through education, which is why we give so much attention to our student interns and their career development.
