Good food starts with the discovery of good ingredients.
Western Victoria is home to some of the highest quality produce in the world, fostered by passionate growers, farmers, foodies, and everyone in between. The ingredients in this region are lovingly cultivated, grown, reared, and handcrafted to promote healthy and delicious dishes.
Inspired by the already present culinary strengths of the region, Eat Drink West is an online community of sustainable farmers, thoughtful foodies, innovative chefs, and collaborative artisans, sharing expertise in order to showcase Western Victoria’s vibrant culinary industry. By creating a directory of like-minded food producers from across the region, Eat Drink West strengthens local food systems and constructs opportunities. Connecting across sub-regions of Western Victoria, our platform allows for communal interconnectivity, using digital and in-person forums to share information.
By clicking through our website, attending a workshop, or ‘liking’ a Facebook post, travellers and locals alike can connect effortlessly with all things food-related in their area.
The Eat Drink West Community.
At the core of Eat Drink West is the Western Victoria community; a community that fosters an amazing and growing food industry. We strive to create accessibility to and for growers and producers in order to promote their wares by developing a range of models for spreading information.
Our community consists of anyone committed to sustainable, delicious, and healthy food from across Western Victoria. We are chefs, entrepreneurs, ranchers, and bakers. We are farmers, artisans, sommeliers, and advocates. We are a diverse and versatile community with our values rooted in the natural resources and society cultivated in Western Victoria.
We connect community members by actively engaging with individuals across platforms, both in person and from behind the comfort of a screen. Using mediums such as podcasts, interactive social media campaigns, workshops, and in-house publications, we weave together the stories of local producers that are committed to health and sustainability.
While individuals promote their wares, they exchange so much more – artisans, makers, and consumers all take on the role of storyteller.
