Food tourism is a growing trend, with new generations of travellers looking for unique and memorable food and beverage experiences. New Zealand’s primary sectors are diverse, innovative, and high-performing, not only in the range of food and beverage products we produce but also in the way we produce them.Plan Your Tour
New Zealand's cuisine has been described as Pacific Rim, drawing inspiration from Europe, Asia, and Polynesia. This blend of influences has created a mouth-watering range of flavours and food available in cafes and restaurants nationwide.
For dishes that have a distinctly New Zealand style, there's lamb, pork, venison, salmon, crayfish (lobster), Bluff oysters, paua (abalone), mussels, scallops, pipis, and tuatua (both are types of New Zealand shellfish), kumara (sweet potato), kiwifruit, tamarillo and pavlova, the national dessert. Its distinctiveness is more in the way New Zealanders eat, generally preferring as relaxed and unaffected as possible, in keeping with the laidback Kiwi psyche.
The country's wine industry has grown rapidly in recent years and achieved remarkable success and a great international reputation. Most of New Zealand's over 600 wineries are accessible for tasting.
