Taste Causeway is supporting local businesses to think outside the box and introduce new ways to deliver local food and drink to their customers in these unprecedented times.

Local food and drink producers, who have seen a catastrophic disruption to their normal business, have had to look at innovative ways to reach the local market. Many have set up online ordering and home delivery schemes available through the Taste Causeway E-shop www.tastecauseway.com/shops with regular updates through social media @tastecauseway.

Online deliveries have gone through the roof in recent weeks, with businesses collaborating to support each other, creating boxes of local food and drink.  Broughgammon Farm are doing a selection of boxes including a Larder Box, Chicken Box and Wellness Box.  Warkes Deli are provide home delivery of a whole range of Taste Causeway products. Local craft brewer Lacada are supplying beer online, Broighter Gold have ramped up their online shop with discounts and delivery promotions, Local peanut butter company Taste Joy got their online deliveries up and running and have been shipping all over the UK and Ireland. Recent additions to the e-shop include Glens of Antrim lamb box and artisan chocolates/eggs from Chocolate Manor and North Coast Chocolates.

The Taste Causeway  u-tube channel launches this week with a special Cook around the Causeway series with Paula Mc Intyre. Gary Stewart from Tartine has cooked a full Easter Sunday dinner which is being promoted heavily by Tourism NI.

Taste Causeway is also appealing to customers to support the local hospitality sector. An online campaign has been created to ask the public to consider buying a voucher from one of our local restaurants, hotels or food experiences to use in the future – a lovely experience to look forward to.

A series of competitions to win vouchers to spend in the Taste Causeway e-shop and two tickets for Dine Around Bushmills will be running over the Easter period
