Our Work

Local product development

Our aim is to enable small, local businesses to benefit from tourism, whilst also creating a more appealing, authentic destination offer.

We work with small and micro enterprises, building local people’s skills and confidence to access the international tourism market so that they gain secure incomes.  For example, we have worked with excursion providers, those making and selling crafts, food producers, restaurant owners and more.  We also encourage hotels, tour operators and wholesalers to purchase locally-produced products.

We have expertise and experience in skills training, workshop facilitation, and in convening public/private partnerships.
