Savouring tourism

Broader recognition for national accreditation will see benefits flow to restaurants.

Restaurant & Catering Australia is in the process of working with the Federal Government on the National Tourism Accreditation Framework. This process is designed to come up with a way to promote quality tourism businesses from restaurants to campsites. This is all part of a pre-election commitment by Minister Ferguson. This process is working well with all the industry and government players working together toward a common goal. It’s satisfying  to realise again that we have a great quality tourism product here.

Sometimes we need reminding that we do it very well here in Australia. The lengths that many businesses go to in order to please a more demanding customer is quite outstanding. Restaurants and caterers demonstrate this every day. The number of awards and acknowledgments our industry gets show just how outstanding our product is. Have our own awards for excellence system recognised as a quality scheme for tourism accreditation is proof positive that our measurement is comparable to other quality systems.

Recognition of the Savour Australia™ programs as part of the framework will provide marketing and regulatory benefits. Also those who want to be part of such schemes could be part of packaged tourism products sold off-shore.
