NEL (Northamptonshire Enterprise Limited) has developed a series of initiatives in recent months to help raise the profile of the excellent food and drink that is available in the county.
These new initiatives – which range from training courses to an annual Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards – aim to help raise standards amongst producers and venues by promoting healthy competition and industry training; whilst at the same time generating public interest and increasing custom.
Some 30,000 visitors use consumer facing Northamptonshire websites each month and, in order to connect them more effectively with the county’s pubs and restaurants, NEL is working with Go Dine, a dedicated online restaurant booking and advisory facility. Go Dine is already working in partnership with our counterparts in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire; promoting restaurants to the visitor, resident and business communities to great success.
The Go Dine Northamptonshire system will be launched in the coming weeks.
