New initiative encourages community to have a taste of global culture in their own backyard

While many of us have been forced to rethink our travel plans this year, it doesn’t mean we have to miss out on experiencing a taste of rich cultures from around the world.

City of Salisbury is encouraging local food businesses to register to be part of a new campaign, Global Food Passport, which is planned to be available for the community in November and December.

Community members will be able to unlock once-off incentives and special deals upon presentation of the passport at participating local businesses. 

Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said the initiative was both a great way to encourage the community to shop local, as well as an opportunity for people to discover the city’s culinary hidden gems.

“With such a fantastic range of food options in the City of Salisbury, from Mexican to Middle Eastern to Japanese, we truly are spoilt for choice,” Mayor Aldridge said.

“The Global Food Passport will highlight and celebrate these great options to support our local business community while offering exciting opportunities to try out new cuisines for the local community.”

To take part in the campaign and be included within the passport, food businesses are encouraged to register online by Wednesday 30 September 2020.

The initiative is an extension of Council’s #ShopSalisbury campaign, for which about 90 local businesses have already signed up. The platform connects the community with opportunities to support local – whether they are looking for retail services, trades, health and beauty, medical or professional services and more.
