Food trailer to build Katanning menu
A Shire of Katanning initiative is set to support the development of the local food tourism industry by enabling small businesses to try their hand with a food van. The Shire’s new food trailer is part of a tourism attraction and development project supported by a $35,960 Regional Economic Development grant through the GSDC.
Katanning is regarded as the most multicultural regional town in Western Australia and its events have long boasted a diverse range of authentic foods. With the launch of the food trailer, talented local cooks and caterers can now hire a platform to test their food ideas.
Katanning Shire President Liz Guidera launched the food trailer at an event on Wednesday 4 November, saying it built on the town’s multicultural strengths.
The project also included training and workshops on marketing, merchandise development, event planning and food safety. A food and event development network was established to expand opportunities.
