Sorry this event has now finished.

Have you got what it takes to showcase our tastiest produce and sell NI as a foodie destination? Are you ready to make the most of Northern Ireland Year of Food & Drink for your business?

This unique opportunity, supported by Derry City & Strabane District Council Skills Team, will provide recognised and accredited training to become a ‘WorldHost Food Ambassador.’

WorldHost Food Ambassador is a recognised and accredited training programme tailored specifically for Northern Ireland’s acclaimed food and drink industry. It is time to shout about our homegrown classics and to spread the word about our amazing chefs and restaurants. This means knowing what and who we’re talking about and doing that with confidence and passion. Put simply, this is customer service that sells!

This half-day session, developed by Tourism NI, People 1st and Food NI/Taste of Ulster will:

  • use experiential learning and include a wide range of local food and drink tasting;
  • bring you up to speed on all that is happening in our growing food and drink industry;
  • equip you with the confidence and knowledge you need to tell the stories of our local produce.


The course is open to front line staff from companies that presently hold WorldHost Recognition and will be offered at no cost.

Places will be allocated on first come, first serve basis.
