Culinary tourists worldwide are drawn to countries like China, Japan, India, Thailand, and Vietnam because of their outstanding and internationally recognised cuisines.

Newark, March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 1.1 trillion culinary tourism market will reach USD 6.2 trillion by 2033. The market’s expansion can be ascribed to rising consumer expenditure on travel and tourism, travellers’ desire to sample food items manufactured with locally sourced ingredients, and the rise in food travellers who traverse the world and discover new cultures via cuisine. The main factor propelling the market’s expansion is consumers’ growing interest in trying out regional cuisine to interact with people and learn more about the area, its past, and its culture. The World Travel Association (WTFA) 2022 Report states that 34% of travellers go to destinations that appeal to them based on their culinary preferences. Furthermore, as said in the 2023 study, travellers are exposed to various lifestyles through culinary culture, which is important to comprehend regarding socio-political knowledge. In January 2022, UNESCO added 27 customs related to food and drink to its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. For example, travellers visit nations like Senegal for Ceebu Jën (a rice, vegetable, and fish meal), Haiti for Joumou Soup (made with squash), Italy for truffles, and Ukraine for Borsht.

Market Dynamics:

Drivers: Increasing use of mobile phones

The rise in the use of mobile devices and the expansion of internet connectivity have improved traveller communication, leading to the sharing ideas and experiences both in-person and on social media. This encourages other foodies and adventurers to organise gourmet and adventurous events, furthering market expansion.

Restraint: Strict government regulations

Regulations controlling the tourism sector may apply to culinary tours and events. To guarantee the calibre and security of the food it offers, it is additionally bound by health and safety laws. Regulations in some nations are designed to encourage environmentally friendly practices in the food business, including reducing waste, using locally produced food, and conserving energy. This is expected to hinder the market’s growth.

Opportunity: Initiative taken by the government and associations to promote culinary tourism

The government’s and associations’ initiatives to encourage culinary tourism are another driver propelling the sector. For example, Destination Indigenous was introduced in 2020 by the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC). This campaign promotes the best Indigenous travel experiences across Canada. One of its initiatives is the ITAC Culinary Directory, which lists 27 eateries and vineyards along with 14 conference spaces, breweries, and catering services. Giving guests a taste of Canada’s Indigenous peoples’ diverse cultures is the primary goal of Destination Indigenous. Their main areas of interest are tours of the natural world and wildlife, cultural exchange, lodging, leisure, dining, and handicrafts.
