PROJECT: Taste of Fethiye
Taste of Fethiye tackled one of the most challenging aspects of sustainable tourism for destinations: integrating small, local producers into a large tourism supply chain. The project enabled farmers in Fethiye, Turkey to benefit from tourism by supplying mainstream hotels. The project has increased income for farmers, introduced more sustainable farming methods, engaged businesses in sustainable tourism and enhanced the tourist experience.
Taste of Fethiye was set up and delivered by sustainable tourism charity, the Travel Foundation, in partnership with TUI UK & Ireland, Thomas Cook and The Co-operative Travel. It is now run by local partner FETAV.
