Rural insurer Cornish Mutual has teamed up with Cornwall Food & Drink to launch ‘Food Adventures’, a series of online guides to Cornwall’s “hidden gems and fantastic food producers”.
The new guides will introduce people to the gastronomic delights of Cornwall’s food and drink industry, taking in trips to local butchers, bakers, delicatessens, farm shops, brewers and cafés.
The Food Adventures were developed as part of a team building exercise for Cornish Mutual staff based in Truro, which was managed by the team at Cornwall Food & Drink.
At the launch, Cornish Mutual MD Alan Goddard said: “We split the company into teams and challenged them to go out and discover new places and experience the great food and drink that Cornwall has to offer.
“This is a really exciting initiative for us to be involved in. The county has some first-class culinary delights, coupled with passionate chefs and local producers – definitely something worth promoting and celebrating. We are proud to be part of this project and our staff were really enthusiastic about it, they came back with some fantastic suggestions – it was very hard to pick the best!”
Ruth Huxley, director of Cornwall Food & Drink, added: “Food and drink is so important to tourism and the Cornish economy and we’re committed to making sure that as many people as possible have every opportunity to enjoy it. The Food Adventures will help people do that.”
