The Camping and Caravanning Club will next week re-launch its campaign to support local communities by encouraging holidaymakers to ‘Eat Local’ and enjoy great British produce when out camping and caravanning.
The initiative has again welcomed the support of Calor, the UK’s leading provider of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, as well as outdoor camping specialist and industry leader, Outwell.
To raise awareness of the campaign, the Club will release a new Eat Local guide which contains valuable regional information including; local delicacies, recommended eateries and wineries and where to look for the very best gastro-delights.
I'm all for eating local. I can't understand the idea of trying to cram enough food for the holiday into the fridge before heading off. One of the great things about exploring different regions and different countries is exploring their produce and trying their "cuisine".

We always believe in supporting the local economy when ever we are away, the only food we keep in the caravan is the normal tins of beans, corned beef, and potatoes mainly for emergency quick knock together meals if the weather is in clement and we don't get out.
We normally try to suss out the best butchers or dining places, unless we know the area well then we already know where to go for the best products.
Definately a good idea and we do this anyway. Everythnig is part of a holiday. I remember in my younger days going out on 18-30 holidays with the girls and lads and living off pod noodles. A quality holiday is making the most of what you see and try new things, of course local couisine and produce is something that should be tried. Will be great to support economy for producers around the areas too.
