Making it simple to Taste Alpine

LOCAL producers are being recognised for the quality of their goods under Council’s new “Taste Alpine” initiative.

Taste Alpine encourages local businesses, visitors and residents to buy local products by making it easier to identify and source those grown or made in the Alpine Shire.

A pocket-size Taste Alpine produce guide was released last week, to help visitors, locals and businesses identify where to source fresh local produce.

Council’s Manager Economic Development Clayton Neil said the booklet was the first step of the initiative, which will highlight the amazing diversity of our local produce for locals and visitors alike.

“Taste Alpine is dedicated to promoting our fantastic local produce by making it easy for people to seek out a wide range of produce from well-known berries and nuts to morellos and persimmons,” he said.

“It has the joint benefit of increasing the profile of Alpine Shire products for visitors and also encouraging local businesses to make the most of what is grown close to home.”

Local produce and involved businesses will be recognisable by the Taste Alpine sticker and by referring to the Taste Alpine produce guide.

Local products are available at Visitor Information Centres in Myrtleford and Mount Beauty, and the Alpine Information Centre, Bright.
