Feed the Future
Barbados Food and Rum Festival: “Feed the Future”
The theme of this year’s Barbados Food and Rum Festival is “Feed the Future”.
Here’s what the theme “Feed the Future” means to us:
- We pledge to support education and training opportunities for youth in areas of culinary and hospitality development.
- We recognize the role of tourism in creating and sustaining a high quality of life for Barbadians, especially as the industry rebounds from COVID-19.
- We believe Barbados must adopt sustainable practices and through the festival we can emphasise the importance of food security for small island developing states such as Barbados.
