Flavours of Plenty is a not-for-profit collective and an initiative of Tourism Bay of Plenty.

Our aim is to connect and collaborate with the food community of Te Moananui ā Toi | The Coastal Bay of Plenty. We’re here to help celebrate and elevate what we’ve got to offer as a food region.

Take a trip to Te Moananui ā Toi, where abundance and seasonality meet innovation and flair. Thanks to our rich horticultural history, fertile seas and volcanic soils, our region serves up some of the freshest flavours in Aotearoa and that’s the way it’s always been.

From the time of kūmara, rīwai and kamokamo to kiwifruit, avocados and berries, our fruitful history has given the Bay a rightfully earned reputation for natural abundance and plentiful produce, and we’re not done yet.

Today, we’re pushing the plate with truffle farms, new colours of kiwifruit, a diverse dining scene, night markets, farmers markets and pop-up restaurants. Paired with our deep cultural foundation of manaaki tangata (to provide and care for people), we are committed to creating unforgettable, world class culinary experiences that weave a powerful connection from our place, to plate.
