New Forest Marque

The development of the New Forest Marque® means that people can choose food and goods which have been grown, reared, caught, brewed or produced in the New Forest area. It allows local producers to market their produce under a collective and easily identifiable New Forest symbol, whilst at the same time reassuring consumers about the traceability of the food they buy.

New Forest Breakfast

The 'New Forest Breakfast' was developed to encourage stronger links between small tourism businesses and local producers in the New Forest. Research in the past undertaken by Tourism South East had shown that B&B's and small hotels were interested in using local produce in their business but did not know enough about where to source the produce, nor do they find in practical to get produce from a number of different outlets.
