Tourism and conservation working in partnership.

Local food in local businesses

Would you be interested in offering more local food to your customers?

The Lake District National Park Partnership is working to identify how it can help to increase local food sourcing among tourism businesses in Cumbria.

We want to find out what the barriers are to local sourcing from the perspective of both buyers and producers, working with local supply chains to try and identify ways of strengthening connections between the food and tourism sectors. We’re keen to hear from tourism businesses large and small, food producers and suppliers, so if you’ve got a great idea or challegnes that you’d like to share please do get in touch with

If you’d like to help us with this research a very quick and easy way is to visit to go to a short online survey, or give us a call on 07703 883474 and we’ll complete it for you. It will only take about 10 minutes.

With the benefit of this research, we may be able to secure additional funding for practical measures to help overcome barriers to getting local food into local businesses. 

This work has been funded by Defra and The Rural Growth Network.  Thanks in advance for your time.
