Food and Drink Festival worth almost £300,000

The Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival is worth £298,000 to the local economy.

That’s according to a report compiled by The Marketing Partnership after this year’s event.

The value has risen from £230,000 in 2017.

This September’s festival was the largest yet – attracting more than 10,000 visitors.

Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister Geoffrey Boot says: “The Festival’s growing popularity reflects the growth in Isle of Man food and drink, being driven by the Department’s Food Matters strategy and the growing desire among people to support local food and drink producers and businesses.

“These statistics are impressive and it is highly encouraging to witness first-hand the impact that this event is having on our local economy.

“We have high hopes that this will continue in 2019 and beyond."
